Other topics for discussion include:

11.00 Session two: Hot topics in anti-corruption compliance

Corruption risks abound, and regulators’ expectations regarding what constitutes an effective anti-corruption compliance program continue to rise, throughout Latin America and beyond. Having a well-written code of conduct is not enough. Effective compliance requires appropriate procedures and controls, including around training, certifications, diligence, monitoring, and testing. What issues keep in-house lawyers and compliance professionals up at night, and what lessons can be learned regarding how best to develop and enhance an anti-corruption compliance program? A seasoned group of in-house experts will address:       

  • Compliance risks posed by third parties: agents, distributors, consultants, etc.
  • Successor liability and associated problems from M&A, JV, and other transactional activity
  • Monitoring and testing to ensure the effectiveness of a compliance program
  • Appropriate handling of whistleblower complaints

12.25: Session three: Anti-corruption regional roundup

Argentina, Chile, and Mexico each participates in the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention and similar international treaty regimes, but has been criticized by Transparency International and others for a lack of enforcement of their foreign bribery regimes. In recent years, there have been important legislative and enforcement developments in each of these countries, with domestic bribery and corruption issues at the forefront of public attention. The panel will explore these legal developments, focusing on important cross-cutting issues, including:

  • Legal responsibility of companies for acts of their employees
  • Expectations regarding corporate compliance programs
  • Relevant local customs and practices
  • Trends regarding whistleblowers
  • Expectations of enforcement authorities regarding corporate cooperation 
  • Collaboration among authorities in the hemisphere
  • Influence of the Brazilian experience on policymakers and enforcement authorities

  • Lessons from litigation, regulation, and enforcement concerning cyber incidents in the U.S and elsewhere
  • Implications for multinational companies of cross-border data storage and transfer
  • Developments in Latin America and what they signal about the cyber threat in the region
