Bribery and corruption damages lives, reputations, and businesses. Yet in many countries, bribery is a regular--even accepted--business practice. The direct victims of bribery include businesses that lose out unfairly because of corrupt practices, and on a wider scale, governments and society as a whole.

This course takes an in-depth look at the causes of bribery and corruption, how to recognize red flags, and what companies should consider and include in their compliance programs to ensure that their international partners, agents, consultants, and subsidiaries comply with the rule of law.

This course covers:

  • Keys to recognizing, understanding and dealing with corruption.
  • The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), and how to ensure compliance.
  • How other countries fight corruption, including the U.K’s Anti-Bribery Act and the OECD’s ‘Anti-Bribery” Convention.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify what corruption is and how to recognize it.
  • Recognize red flags and other warning signs pointing to corrupt practices.
  • Identify steps that you can take to better foresee your global corruption risks.
  • Articulate the need for ongoing risk assessments and review.
  • Identify why third-party due diligence can make or break your program.

A good briefing. What the instructor failed to mention is that it is only selectively enforced. He did mention the prosecutor has discretion, however the most grievous offenders are still running for office, in office, or retired from office.

This course was exceptional! Very informative and thought provoking. There really weren't any surprises. Owners and senior managment level employees would greatly benefit from this course.

Overall, a great course - very practical! I like that it was broken up into parts and included checklists for you to evaluate your own organization as the course progressed.

I enjoyed how informative and positive the speaker was during the Session. He provided real life small examples to help understand some terminology.

Audio is horrible in this presentation. It sounds like the presenter has the mic in his mouth. The cracking and popping is very distracting.

It was well-structured and informative. There was a fair amount of popping in the microphone in some sections which was distracting for me.

Doing business internationally necessitates understanding of this subject matter, and the consequences of not abiding by the FCPA

Very good course with detailed explanations and examples. Somewhat long due to frequent pauses. A faster pace would be better.

Good review of what FCPA is, how it shows up. Not clear on the value of the UK review... to the extent it was covered.
