Fighting corruption has gone global. With the US government escalating its enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (FCPA) and international instruments like the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the United Nations Convention against Corruption significantly stepping up their anti-corruption efforts, penalties exceeding $2 billion are starting to make headlines.

Join us as we examine the high-profile FCPA violations making headlines, the elements impacting this increase in prosecution, and ways management can identify and address potential corruption.​
