Corpedia to Host Series of Expert Webinars to Help Companies Understand and Align to the Recently-Released FCPA Guidance in Light of Overwhelming Response to FCPA Event

The series will help further break open the guidance and provide resources for organizations to compare their programs and further allocate internal resources

PHOENIX--()--Corpedia, an NYSE Euronext Company and the leader in governance, risk, and compliance training and advisory services, announced today that, after a huge response to their informational webinar on the recently released guidance, they will host a series of expert-led sessions on a variety of topics to help organizations align their current programs.

Since the late '90s, the FCPA has been scrutinized for its lack of clarity and definition. On November 14, 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission jointly released the comprehensive Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) Resource Guide. Further expanding on the FCPA with case studies, the new guidance provides insights to help organizations abide by the law, detect and prevent FCPA violations, and implement effective and creditworthy compliance programs.

"The new guidance reinforces what many of us have been saying for years now: organizations that rely on a 'check the box' approach to anti-corruption efforts, but don't consider issues of organizational culture and apply a data-driven risk approach to their programs are not going to be favorably viewed by regulators," said Eric O. Morehead, former Assistant General Counsel to U.S. Sentencing Commission and current Senior Compliance Counsel for Corpedia.

The Corpedia FCPA Expert Webinar Series will include valuable insights around Chapter 5 of the guidance related to governance, risk management, and compliance from top legal experts in the field, contributions from Corporate Board Member around implications for Directors and Board Members and insights from NYSE Euronext specific to how public companies are impacted. This series will dive deeper into the guidance and how Corpedia can help align your current program to suggested best practices. These 20-30 minute webinars are complimentary and will cover the following topics:

“In the Guidance the DOJ and SEC confirmed the risk-based approach that many sophisticated companies have historically undertaken to manage compliance. This saber metric, or Moneyball, approach to compliance will challenge companies to look inward and evaluate both internal and external factors to create a program that allocates compliance resources to address the most significant risks - including the FCPA,” said Ryan McConnell, Partner with Baker & McKenzie.
