Managing Real-World Third Party Risk – The Warning Signs You Don’t See
In this complimentary webcast, Richard Bistrong, CEO of Front-Line Anti-Bribery LLC, former FCPA violator and FBI/UK cooperator, shares his unique insights on managing real-world third party risk. He also provides best practices and solutions to safeguard employees and organizations against these risks.
Topics of Discussion
- What are the behavioral risks to an organization from front-line personnel who work in low integrity regions?
- Does a legalistic and risk-based compliance program address the WAH (What Actually Happens) in the field?
- Should corruption risk be “baked into” business strategy, forecasts and incentive plans?
- How do internal business sponsors (company employees) conspire with third parties to circumvent even the most robust vetting and on-boarding processes?
Richard now blogs at www.richardbistrong.com about current front-line anti-bribery and compliance issues. Abstracts on Richard’s compliance practice can be found on his website.
