Dealings with third parties and due diligence assessments
When trading internationally, more often than not companies will deal with third parties such as commercial agents and distributers. A key issue for companies dealing with third parties is the need for thorough and effective due diligence to make sure you avoid potential compliance risks.
In this session you will hear best practice examples from companies who regularly deal with third parties. They will illustrate how to conduct due diligence assessments and what key risk indicators you should look out for to help you mitigate the risks.
This session will also look at how you can risk assess which third parties you should be conducting due diligence on and what methods such as red flags.

Silo thinking and how to overcome this
Companies can often face challenges when parts of the business fall into silo thinking and when you, as a compliance professional, need them to change their business plan to fit into the company wide compliance strategy, you can face resistance. To develop an effective compliance programme, you must ensure there is an integrated approach to compliance not just globally but also across all business units. In this session speakers will address the following challenges:
How can compliance professionals persuade business units to change their business plan? How best can you mitigate compliance gaps within the business?
