Opening Address :
Rules-based frameworks to values-based governance ....... "Conceptually, it's in the heart and head"
This session will provide delegates with an outline of why it is fundamentally necessary to move from a rules based framework to challenging the "hearts and minds" of those not only working for the organisation, but those intent on disrupting its activities through fraud, corruption and "personal-principle" related activities which are detrimental to employees who have a basic desire to be successful.
With the expertise from a market / benchmarked leader who are "best in class", in cascading more than just a "tone from the top" it's all about reading people - and their desire to move away from core values .....
Reporting to Government Enforcement Authorities
One of the most difficult issues companies face in the compliance area is deciding whether and when to disclose problematic conduct to government enforcement authorities. In some circumstances, disclosure is required, which means that failing to disclose in a timely manner can expose the company to both civil and criminal liability. In a far greater number of circumstances, the company will be faced with weighing the pros and cons of voluntary disclosure.
This workshop will focus on disclosure issues arising under the US, UK and other legal regimes. It also will take into account the impact on disclosure decisions of the recently enacted whistleblower provisions of the Dodd-Frank Act in the US and the longstanding Proceeds of Crime Act in the UK.

Data protection and data management strategies
As IT departments of large companies increasingly turn to open source solutions as a way to store and manage data, you cannot afford to leave such decisions to the IT department. Cloud computing and other open source solutions offer substantial cost reductions but there are a number of risks associated with these platforms, most notably the data protection challenges that arise.
How could these IT solutions assist the legal function? What information do you need to assess the compliance risks of a new data solution?
