  • Risks facing directors and officers are rapidly changing.
  • DOJ priorities, recent case law regarding the impact of data breach, financial misstatements, changing international regulations, and compliance requirements are a sample of shifting risks/compliance demographics that can affect not only directors, officers, country managers, but also, a company’s bottom line and, in some countries, imprisonment.
  • As such, these changing risks and compliance regulations are important to corporate counsel, compliance officers and risk managers.
  • Our presentation will address developing risks, compliance strategies and provide an overview of steps to help protect your directors and officers globally.
