Session 1 | Anti-Corruption in the Middle East and Global Enforcement Landscape

The risks of fraud, bribery, and corruption are not going away any time soon. The perception of risk is even higher in certain parts of the world, including the Middle East in terms of how companies and governments may elect to do business. The risk is even greater if coupled with the fact that best practices for a robust anti-bribery or anti-corruption program are not in place, which continues to plague even large companies within the region. This panel will explore the latest in corruption concerns, region-specific misconduct and global enforcement implications that companies need to respond to swiftly in order to meet higher standards.
