A clear understanding of your FCPA risk profile – including your company’s vulnerabilities, compliance history, and partners – means a reduced risk of incidents, and established control in the event of noncompliance. In this session our compliance experts will walk you through the best ways to take a holistic approach, in order to help you detect and monitor risk – while uncovering current vulnerabilities or past incidents.

Key Takeaways:

  • How to identify patterns of FCPA risk in your industry and/or location, in order to address the vulnerabilities that are most likely or common for your organization – before any misdeeds actually occur
  • Developing a better understanding of your risk profile and history – and re-assessing prior incidents – to ensure that your compliance program is progressing
  • Implementing a third-party risk management program that can generate reports containing risk ratings and alert categories – to identify high-risk third parties and initiate a process for continuous monitoring
