Although enforcement guidelines around the world vary in length, tone, language, and specificity, virtually all touch upon a set of core themes.
We have distilled these into five essential elements: leadership, risk assessment, standards and controls, training and communication, and oversight. These five elements serve as foundational, best-practice principles for the way we counsel our clients in the area of corporate compliance with respect to the design, development, implementation, and enhancement of compliance programs. Importantly, they also represent a tested framework for the effective defense of corporate programs before authorities around the world.
Our resource provides insight on effectively managing corporate compliance efforts in today's evolving regulatory and enforcement environments. It is filled with practical insight for all companies with extended enterprises--both domestic and multinational--seeking to deter, detect, prevent, and, when necessary, remediate illegal practices or other misconduct. We also addresses a wide array of related risk management considerations, from effective culture and governance to active program awareness and adherence.
While the 5 Essential Elements of Corporate Compliance spotlights the area of anti-corruption compliance and surveys key jurisdictions with notably active or burgeoning legal and enforcement systems, the content also cuts across compliance subject areas and national boundaries by integrating best practice guidance from a variety of influential global regulators and international organizations.
