  • 8:45 am - 12:15 pm

WORKSHOP B - Risk Assessment

A compliance program is useless without an accurate risk assessment. Risk assessment is considered one of the key pillars of an effective compliance program. This assessment must be conducted and reviewed regularly focusing on risks associated with bribery and corrupt practices and other existing corporate policies, such as conflicts of interest, lobbying, donation, business courtesies, government interaction, etc. This important analysis must consider the ecosystem in which the company operates, its size, and the level of commitment of its partners, third parties, and suppliers.

Not only large organizations, but also small and medium-sized companies are getting into existing certifications and seals. In a business environment that increasingly demands ethics and transparency, it is essential for organizations to treat the concepts of corporate governance and compliance as two sides of the same coin.
