Ethisphere introduces the 2017 Latin America Ethics Summit.
While business growth and opportunity remains rich throughout Latin America, perceived risk is still substantially high. What is the acceptable amount of risk an organization should bare? What are the biggest flags for 2017 and on the horizon? This panel of General Counsels will share their experience with assessing risk as it relates to Latin America, managing governance across both executive management and compliance and making the case for either enabling or halting business decisions.

The complex third party environment is wrought with challenges with bribery and corruption at the very top of the list. Even the most sophisticated third party programs can experience a lack of confidence in identifying the company’s greatest vulnerabilities. Incorporating better monitoring practices is essential to closing the risk gaps. What data can be used to aid in monitoring third parties? How can you avoid failure at the outset of due diligence? And how should monitoring be deployed to uncover threats early and often? This panel will share new insights and best practices to effectively combat bribery and corruption that continues to place companies in jeopardy.

Internal investigations are a reality for any company and an inevitable part of the compliance process. The variety of investigations is substantial and increasingly complex across a global matrix of law and regulation, such as Latin America. Failure to address issues like privacy considerations, timely response and proper reporting to all stakeholders can put the company’s reputation on the line and subject it to disruption of operations. This panel of multinationals with distinct functional responsibility will explore the latest challenges, region-specific concerns and best practices in addressing investigations and streamlining efforts at the company.

Training is an essential part of the compliance process. New technology has allowed multinationals to widely disseminate information critical to nurturing broad compliance knowledge and value-driven insights. However, even advanced technology that drives training can be lost on a key segment of the workforce. What modalities need to be considered for a comprehensive training environment? What are some of the lessons learned about embedding new training for a global business? This panel of forward-thinking companies will share training tips that resonate across the company and consider regional and cultural implications.

The foundation of organizational integrity is closely linked to the ethical culture of the company. Believing you have an ethical culture is always important, but what information are companies turning to in order to support those beliefs? As data-focused as companies tend to be, metrics that bring the culture into clearer view are still evolving. Employee engagement surveys will offer insight, but many gaps are left unexposed. This session will offer insights on assessing the ethical culture through better measurement and connectivity to the business.

Having just been published in late 2016, the impact that ISO 37001 will have on companies seeking more prescriptive measures to manage anti-bribery programs remains to be seen. What will it take to implement the standard’s requirements? How might this achieve a clearer path to incorporating best practices, especially for global companies doing business in both the US and Latin America? While regulators have yet to thoroughly weigh in on the new standard, companies need to consider the future of anti-bribery management and how they stack up now. This session will take a closer examination of ISO 37001 and address the emerging considerations companies must carefully weigh now.

There is arguably no greater force behind the corporate culture than those at the top, and the good news is that engagement from executive management has never been higher. Both the C-suite and the board are diving deeper into the ethical considerations for the company and helping to inspire values necessary for sustainable, long-term integrity. What approaches is executive leadership taking now to drive a culture of integrity? How do they engage with the Board on such issues? And how can compliance best support these missions through clear collaboration and communication? This executive panel will share stories of embedding trust, transparency and ethics in the organization.
