As anti-corruption laws in the US and Europe are increasingly being more aggressively enforced, multinational companies need to implement comprehensive anti-corruption compliance programs. These programs require large amounts of data to be collected in relation to management, staff and suppliers, which opens up tensions between complying with anti-corruption laws and privacy and data protection laws.

In this webinar we will look at anti-corruption statutes, key challenges related to compliance programs, compliance monitoring and the balance of corporate ethics and data protection in the US and Europe. We will also address data protection implications for internal investigations and disclosure requirements of regulators and courts.

Topics Will Include:

  • Overview of anti-corruption statutes, including the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act.
  • Key data protection challenges for compliance programs and compliance monitoring
  • Development of a suitable framework for due diligence investigations of third-party intermediaries in line with data protection requirements
  • Data protection challenges for conducting multi-jurisdictional internal investigations
  • Privacy risk mitigation when making voluntary disclosures to regulators and defending enforcement actions


CPD and CLE credit are pending for this event.
