All levels of society rely upon information technology systems. Network operations are pervasive and impact nearly every aspect of our society. The desire of companies to collect, use, store and secure information about customers, employees and other individuals is a requirement of the new economy. It is no wonder that the prevalence of electronic communications and a growing dependency on cyber structures and operations also create potential vulnerabilities to cyber attacks.  It is critical to preserve information systems and address and prevent weaknesses in cyber protection efforts. This webinar examines the means for companies to reach data goals ethically, efficiently and legally. Best practices and model comprehensive privacy and cybersecurity policies are discussed. And, data breach response and related litigation, including class action litigation issues and fiduciary duty violations under corporate law, are discussed.

The Federal Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”) prohibits a U.S. company or person from bribing foreign government officials to obtain a business advantage.  Along with this seemingly simple restriction comes accounting and record keeping requirements with which companies must comply.  The FCPA requires the implementation of a compliance program which addresses FCPA concerns and establishes an FCPA corporate policy.  This webinar covers the basics of the FCPA, including an introduction to the regulators, both the SEC and DOJ, and recent communications to the public regarding the FCPA from these regulatory bodies.  The standards for a compliance program review is analyzed, including what makes a program current and effective as well as how often the program requires review.  The role of a compliance coordinator is discussed, as is record keeping, training, and retaliation.  Finally, meals and entertainment, gifts, travel, charitable contributions, and hiring are all be discussed with reference to recent government actions and legal decisions.

The volume and complexity of transactions related to procurement are some of the reasons that transactions with the government are most vulnerable to corruption. State and federal regulatory compliance can be tough to navigate and the process can make even routine sales and marketing practices vulnerable to civil and criminal liability. This webinar analyzes the regulatory framework, including identification of some of the legal risks in solicitations, pre- and post-award bid protests, contract compliance, change orders, and contract claims and disputes.  The webinar also discusses defense strategies of a company that is accused of fraud or civil non-compliance.
