Hot topics, current events and best practices in compliance were on the agenda this week at the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) 14th Annual Compliance & Ethics Institute in Las Vegas. CRI Group was there, supporting the event as a media partner and exhibitor while meeting with compliance professions to discuss the latest issues affecting the industry.
Speakers included compliance executives and experts, an accomplished author and a NASA astronaut, among many others. Twenty-nine countries and five continents were represented as more than 1,500 compliance professionals gathered at ARIA for eight tracks of learning sessions and an investigations workshop.
CRI Group is a natural fit at the Compliance & Ethics Institute, with experts positioned around the globe to serve companies’ compliance and risk management needs. John Dejesu, CRI Group’s Director of Business Development, noted that for more than 20 years, CRI Group has provided compliance solutions through targeted services including anti-money laundering controls, integrity due diligence, corporate security and resilience, third-party risk management and investigative due diligence.
Now more than ever, companies must be in-step and fully compliant with changing laws and regulations. Those who do business across international borders must take extra care to have robust compliance and anti-corruption measures in place.
The U.S. Patriot Act and anti-corruption legislation such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) contain specific due diligence requirements, especially within the context of emerging markets and offshore business dealings. CRI’s comprehensive Due Diligence Reports provide thorough risk assessments of:
- Prospective and existing clients
- Potential mergers and acquisitions (M&A) targets
- IPO candidates
- Business partners
- Contractors and other agents
Dejesu said that seeing so many dedicated professionals at the Compliance & Ethics Institute demonstrates how much the field is growing. The event is the primary education and networking event in the industry, offering the latest on real-world compliance issues, practical application, emerging trends, and state of the art techniques.
“CRI Group is proud to be a partner in this event and we are looking forward to next year,” Dejesu said.
