From FCPA to Reputation Risk: The Importance of Internal Controls

Webinar - Aravo Webinar Series Logo

Corporations have a long list of ethics and compliance failures to study this year, from anti-bribery lapses to reputation meltdowns, all caused by third parties. Every major FCPA enforcement action involves third parties, and those lapses have led to billions in fines and penalties. All these cases have one connecting theme: insufficient internal controls that let risky transactions go overlooked.

This webinar will review those examples and explore what internal controls should achieve for effective compliance.

Learn more about:

  • Case studies of FCPA enforcement actions and “unwelcome risk events” featuring poor internal control
  • Steps in the control environment and control activities that bolster effective internal controls for various third-party risks; and
  • The relationship of due diligence, internal control, and corporate ethical culture for an effective compliance program.
