2nd Annual Third-Party Risk Management & Oversight Summit @ The Princeton Club
Mar 20 – Mar 21 all-day
2nd Annual Third-Party Risk Management & Oversight Summit @ The Princeton Club | New York | New York | United States

Improper oversight of your third-party relationships can cost your organizations millions. The headlines are filled with stories about recent litigation, corruption and data breaches which makes companies, on high-alert to focus on enhanced third-party risk management, stronger oversight, and heightened controls. Compliance Week and Financial Research Associates have joined forces and are proud to present the “2nd Annual Third-Party Risk Management & Oversight Summit” slated for March 20-21 in New York City. Listen to our senior in-house experts from various industries share practical tools and tips to navigate through the complex world of third-party risk management.

On day two of the conference,  I will moderate a panel  called, “Behind the Bride: Multiple Real-World Perspectives on How Foreign Bribery Occurs, Is Investigated and Could be Prevented,” with Gary Giampetruzzi, Global Vice-Chair, Investigations and White Collar Department in the Litigation Department Paul Hastings LLP, and, George “Ren” McEachern, Supervisory Special Agent FBI. In the session, we will address:

  • Does a compliance program geared to the regulators mean that it’s understood in the field?
  • How can a third-party risk-assessment miss risk, and the perils of ‘vetting and forgetting’?
  • Is everyone in your organization vested in understanding the importance of anti-corruption compliance, including the unintended side effects of bribery?
  • What do the recent changes in international investigatory and prosecutorial anti-corruption resources mean to your organization?
