Session 2 | Cohesive Conversations with the Board: Balancing Governance, Ethics and Compliance Conversations in the Boardroom11:20 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
Getting on the Board agenda is challenging for any leader, and driving an effective dialogue is often even more difficult. Boards are getting smarter and more diverse, and yet harder pressed for time with numerous concerns of increasingly complexity. Company culture and integrity is certainly among the growing areas of concerns, but Boards are looking for better data and metrics to support these discussions. This session will highlight the emerging trends in corporate governance, the intersection with compliance and the ethical culture of the company, and how leaders can better support the objectives of the board and executive management through impactful dialogue.
Session 3 | Privacy Predicaments: The Current State of Data Protection in the EU and the Impact on Company Compliance1:30 - 2:25 p.m.
Privacy is becoming an increasingly important topic both in the EU and globally. This year we have seen the adoption of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and also the recent introduction of the Privacy Shield to replace Safe Harbor. Companies are grappling to get up-to-speed on the new requirements so that companies are implementing robust controls in a business environment that is wrought with data transfer and cyber threats that can expose sensitive information. This seasoned panel of data and privacy experts will share best practices and perspective on the new privacy landscape and what companies are doing now and preparing for in the future.
- Sue Gold, Senior Counsel, Global Privacy EMEAI, Wyndham Worldwide
- Michael Scuvee, Director Global Data Privacy, Corporate Compliance, Corporate Legal, Johnson Controls
Session 4 | The Perception of Anti-corruption Risk, New Enforcement, and the Compliance Culture2:25 - 3:20 p.m.
In 2015, the UK took enforcement to a new level, entering into its first Deferred Prosecution Agreement while the Serious Fraud Office also took action on the “failure to prevent bribery offense” not previously used. New dimensions of enforcement activity are not just picking up in the UK, but across other European countries, and with greater cooperation with US enforcement agencies too. One might argue that the perception of anti-corruption risk, especially for multinationals, has never been higher in this market, nor has the mission to investigate and tackle corporate offenses ever been so important to enforcement entities. What regulation is getting the most attention? How are legal and compliance teams addressing these developments to ensure risk is being managed and understood in each key area of the business? Perhaps most importantly, how do ethics & compliance help create and lead a company culture that puts integrity above bribery, corruption and other offenses that can plague the company? This panel will highlight where a company’s anti-corruption program needs to be in this new era.
- Keith Read, Director, Europe, Convercent
- Ram Aiyer, Regional Ethics & Compliance Counsel, Google, Inc.
Session 5 | Third Party Due-Diligence: Managing Risk Across Global Relationships3:40 - 4:35 p.m.
Whether an organization is looking to expand for the first time overseas, or a multinational continues to grow cross-border and entering new markets, the relationships with suppliers, vendors, and partners is increasingly essential. How do organizations ensure that compliance and ethical standards are in alignment with each third party, and how does that get communicated? How can due diligence processes be enhanced to better identify the “red flags” and material risk? How many layer deep do due diligence efforts need to go so that the appropriate amount of assessment is in place? This seasoned panel will share best practices around relationship management, risk assessment, and building trust, and keeping pace with a business critical global network.
- Nick Devereux, Senior Director, Ethics & Compliance, Europe, Eli Lilly and Company
