Global Risk Think Tank

New for 2020, you will benefit from a series of sessions on the unwritten lessons and “war stories” from the global pandemic, settlements and geopolitical developments-and practical guidance for what is coming down the pipeline.

Who’s Doing What?

With so much at stake, hear what others are doing to update their global compliance action plans, investigations and internal controls, and ensure effective third-party management with limited resources. Save your seat for the benchmarking opportunity of the year!

Special Industry Groups (SIGs) 2.0

Newly revamped for 2020, connect in a smaller-group setting with like-minded individuals from your industry. Expand your industry-specific network and gain best practices tailored to the realities of your business.


Open Q & A Breakout Sessions

Want more time to ask your most burning questions? New for this year, ask experts your follow-up questions at special Open Q & A breakout sessions.


Faculty-Attendee Roundtables

A unique opportunity to connect with expert faculty members in a more intimate, informal setting to chat and expand your “brain trust.”


FCPA TECH

A unique chance to delve into the current landscape of technology solutions. Hear from industry decision-makers on how they are selecting and leveraging analytics, AI and machine learning for effective compliance and third-party management.


Country Risk & Compliance Exchanges

Based on popular demand, we are pleased to announce a new opportunity to meet up with leading practitioners from Brazil and China. Ask questions and gain important takeaways for managing evolving risk factors “on the ground”.

Seating will be limited toward ensuring a smaller-group interaction.

Exclusive Boardroom Series

Designed as an intimate, boardroom-style session, participants will convene with experts who have worked on some of the most historic cases to date. The “closed-door” and smaller-group format will allow for candid, “off the record” discussion on sensitive, hot button issues.


Anonymous Audience Polling

With a user-friendly digital polling system, participants will respond to panel questions confidentially. Allowing for candid insights, take advantage of the chance to compare your compliance and investigations practices to your peers across the globe.

Be the First to Know

FCPA YEAR IN REVIEW

Each year, the opening panel has been the highly anticipated “Year In Review”. Senior officials from the U.S. Department of Justice and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission have provided key updates and have addressed audience questions.

TOWN HALL

Participants have benefited from an enhanced opportunity to engage in Q & A with senior officials from the U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Federal Bureau of Investigation during the highly anticipated closing session of the main conference.

Further details regarding the 2020 Town Hall will follow soon.

Chief Compliance Officer Executive Roundtable
CCO Roundtable

Taking place the day before the main conference, this unique program is designed as a series of smaller-group, “closed door” discussions on critical issues, including ERM, cybersecurity, behavioral compliance, corporate governance, data privacy, and approaches to high stakes decision-making.

As in past years, all participants will be pre-qualified to ensure an optimal networking and benchmarking experience. Attendees will only consist of CCOs (and others with the same level of job responsibilities).

Practical, In-Depth Workshops

Laying the groundwork for the main conference discussions, you and your colleagues will benefit from a deep dive into key FCPA requirements, core elements of a compliance program and an updated toolbox for third-party management:
