Ottawa, ON, Canada (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
i-Sight Software will host a free webinar on applying lessons from 2013 FCPA enforcement actions to today’s compliance activities. The webinar will be presented by compliance expert, author and speaker Tom Fox, on January 21st at 2pm EST.
“Companies can learn a lot about crafting an effective compliance program from the FCPA enforcement actions of last year,” says Joe Gerard, Vice President, Marketing and Sales at i-Sight. “By learning from the mistakes of others, they can save themselves a lot of money and grief if they are ever the subject of a corruption investigation. We are so pleased to have Tom Fox back with us to present a webinar on this important topic.”
Fox is a well-known attorney in the compliance industry, having written several books on corruption investigations and compliance. He speaks frequently at conferences and is a prolific writer and instructor on corruption and enforcement.
“Both the DOJ and SEC continue to communicate through their enforcement actions what they expect from companies in the way of a best practices compliance program and what a company should do if they discover a potential FCPA violation,” says Fox. “These enforcement actions demonstrate that if a company gets ahead of the curve, it can significantly lessen its overall penalty and pain. In this webinar, I’ll talk about how companies can use what they learn from past enforcement actions to direct their future compliance strategies.”
Webinar attendees will learn:
- Details of the major enforcement actions of 2013
- Mistakes companies made that allowed the violations to occur
- Steps they could have taken to prevent the violations
- How documentation helps to reduce penalties in FCPA cases
