Recent Trends in Government Investigations: Is your Compliance Program Ready for Prime Time?

Government investigations, shareholder lawsuits, and whistleblower complaints are alive and well. The DOJ and SEC continue to heavily weight the effectiveness of your compliance program while outdated procedures and risk assessments increase your exposure to liability. Is your board providing proper oversight over your compliance program or company investigations? Are you ready to lead a board investigation? The Rock Center and SVDX will host a panel of experts to discuss the latest trends in government investigations, hot topics in risk management, why the government cares that you care about your internal audit and compliance programs, and how to manage an effective investigation by a Special Committee of the board.
