Overview

Increasing regulatory pressure and heightened scrutiny over global FCPA compliance have raised the question of “how much is enough” when designing a borderless FCPA compliance program. With increasing investigations into FCPA compliance as well as enforcement actions on the rise, companies now need to go beyond domestic expectations. As businesses turn increasingly international, effective management of FCPA risk in emerging markets is now key to successful FCPA compliance.

ethiXbase will be hosting our 1st New York Breakfast Briefing on the 10th of February 2016 in New York, providing an independent platform for industry professionals to engage in pro-active dialogue to explore best practice in global FCPA compliance. Aimed at promoting corporate transparency and ethical conduct, this platform will uncover the importance of a strong and ethical corporate culture as the foundation of a robust anti-corruption compliance framework drawing on strategic lessons from the U.S. and beyond.
