Bytes and Bribes: A Discussion on Mitigating Business Risk
In an ever-more globalized and technologically integrated world, companies are facing increased risks to their business from sources unimaginable just a few years ago. This seminar will focus on two such risks: illegal payments to foreign officials under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and cyber attacks that can compromise a company's customer data, trade secrets, competitiveness and infrastructure.
Through case study and best practices, this moderated discussion will address:
Risks from the company's perspective
How to develop and test internal controls
How to manage when the unthinkable happens--including potential disclosure and managing financial and reputational harm
Risks posed by third-party vendors, often the "weak link" in FCPA compliance and the "back door" for malicious cyber attacks
We anticipate that these incredibly timely topics will generate a lively discussion amongst our panel of experts from Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg LLP and Grant Thornton LLP with time to respond to questions from those in attendance. We hope you will save the date for this seminar.
