Please join us for a lively in-person panel discussion around defining the associated risks, educating the first line of defense, ratcheting up the third line of defense, and preparing for materially increased investigation activities, enforcement activities, and related litigation:

  • What industries/products/services are impacted, and how do these risks manifest?
  • How should corporate compliance programs be updated?
  • What is the regulator perspective around individual accountability and executive compensation?
  • Key enforcement actions and lessons learned
  • Preparing to investigate, disclose, and remediate allegations of non-compliance
