Former U.S. Attorney Alice Martin, U. S. Department of Justice, to Discuss Strategies for Proving Compliance Effectiveness

SAI Global Compliance, the world’s leading provider of GRC products, services and technology, including the Compliance 360® software suite, today announced it will host a free webinar on Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 2:00 p.m. ET, to discuss what federal prosecutors expect from organizations to demonstrate compliance program effectiveness. Alice Martin, a former U.S. Attorney with the U. S. Department of Justice (DOJ), and chief compliance officer, will discuss her time as the lead prosecutor for the HealthSouth $2.9 billion financial fraud case and what she learned from that experience about proactively demonstrating compliance effectiveness.

Gone are the days when prosecutors considered a PowerPoint presentation on the state of a company’s compliance program as proof that a compliance program is real. Today, outdated methods will fall short in the eyes of regulators, which can result in major monetary penalties, reputational damage, lost business or even jail time. Enforcement officials expect to see proactive approaches being used to prevent and detect compliance issues within an organization – and the ability to quickly demonstrate those approaches is critical.

Martin will discuss how her experience at the DOJ and with the HealthSouth case influenced her approach in her subsequent role as a chief compliance officer (CCO). During the webinar, Martin will cover:

  •     Strategies for documenting and demonstrating the credibility of your compliance program
  •     How to prepare your senior team and Board of Directors for the regulator’s knock on the door
  •     Understanding the goals of regulatory visits and the risks of investigations
  •     Ways to strengthen accountability throughout the organization and to build an environment where documentation is available and auditable

WHAT: “Compliance Program Effectiveness: What the Fed Prosecutors Look For?”
WHEN: Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012, from 2:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. ET
