Event Overview:
Once the fact-finding stage of a cross-border investigation is complete, a company may need to remediate any issues identified that can create unsuspected or unanticipated challenges, according to KPMG International's study, "Cross-Border Investigations: Are You Prepared for the Challenge?" Taking effective remedial action can be an important determinant by regulators, both domestic and foreign, in deciding whether to charge a company with a violation of a law or to reduce the size of a criminal fine or penalty that might be assessed. This webcast focuses on remediation after a cross-border investigation and highlights key findings of our report that includes insights from KPMG's professionals across the globe and 60 global executives who oversee cross-border investigations. Included will be a discussion of: How to handle employees found to have engaged in wrongdoing The process of addressing deficient, insufficient, or ineffective policies, procedures or controls that allowed the misconduct to occur Considerations around the timing of remedial actions Our distinguished panel of speakers face the legal and business challenges posed by cross-border investigations on an everyday basis: Jon Leiken, Senior Vice President, Chief Legal Officer, Secretary, Diebold, Inc.
