How has the definition of corporate gatekeeper, and its attendant obligations and responsibilities, evolved in recent years? Headlines and events in this Dodd-Frank world focus on risk of heightened expectations, whistleblowers, personal liability, and civil and criminal penalties, not to mention ethical dilemmas. What is the gatekeeper role of Corporate Counsel, Audit Committee Member, Ethics and Compliance Officers, Internal and External Auditors, C-Suite and others? We will discuss the impact of recent actions by the SEC and other regulatory bodies against gatekeepers. What are the responsibilities and opportunities of serving as a gatekeeper? Hear from a panel with experience in the regulatory, legal, compliance, and ethical aspects of advising gatekeepers on the complex facets of risk scenarios, as well as the benefits and opportunities of the roles. Learn and share how gatekeepers of major corporations maximize the benefits while mitigating the risk. The discussion will include examples of where others went wrong, and what others are doing to proactively and successfully fulfill the role as gatekeeper with the companies for whom they put their credibility on the line.
