In 2015, charitable donations to colleges and universities reached an all-time high of $40.3 billion. As university endowments seek greater returns in a diverse international marketplace, the challenges from investing in funds in high-risk jurisdictions increase exponentially.
Join Kroll Associate Managing Director John Arvanitis and guest Michael A. Lukasek, CPA, Managing Director of the University of Pennsylvania’s Office of Investments, to discuss how to build a world-class compliance program for endowments. Participants in this webinar will gain insights into topics including:
Best practices for vetting and engaging with investments and fund managers in high-risk jurisdictions.
How to establish protocols in preparation for the compliance requirements of the changing regulatory environment.
Three reasons why you join us on July 15
1. Regulatory regimes around the world are evolving and expanding. Higher education endowments must ensure compliance with not only all federal and state laws, but increasingly, foreign regulations as well.
2. Recently, a number of legislative proposals have been advanced that seek to regulate endowment activity and revoke tax-exempt status, leading to heightened scrutiny of and public visibility into endowments and their activities.
3. Expanding into high-return but high-risk jurisdictions can also intensify reputational risks to institutions.
Earlier this year, hundreds of senior compliance leaders told Kroll and Ethisphere what they perceive to be their greatest risks in our 2016 Anti-Bribery and Corruption Report. Do you share the same challenges? Are you aware of or giving the requisite attention to new risks that have emerged? More important, what are the most effective ways to stay ahead of bribery and corruption challenges in 2016 and beyond?
In this interactive webinar on June 22, you will have the opportunity to learn about proven strategies and best practices for solving compliance challenges from our world-leading experts in FCPA, UK Bribery Act, and the growing number of international compliance laws.
Join in the conversation with Kevin Braine and Joe Spinelli from Kroll, and Erica Salmon Byrne from Ethisphere, as they share their insights on the practical implications of the most significant findings in the ABC Report, including the growing concerns over personal liability. All participants will also receive a digital copy of the ABC Report with statistics helpful for benchmarking their compliance programs.
Vietnam continues to be a major foreign direct investment destination in Asia Pacific. The country has positive macro-economic factors demonstrated by its solid and continued GDP growth, a number of free trade agreements, improving infrastructure and a young demographic and low labor costs which has encouraged businesses to relocate there. However, there remain a number of potential uncertainties and risks for inbound investors given the new government administration following the Communist Party of Vietnam’s 12th National Congress in January. The geo-political situation around the South China Sea is also an issue for those operating in Vietnam, and limitations in obtaining information and disclosures can present challenges to parties executing transactions.
Join Kroll and Duane Morris to learn about the risks and opportunities offered by Vietnam. Richard Dailly, Managing Director at Kroll, Giles Cooper, Partner, and Manfred Otto, Associate at Duane Morris will share more about Vietnam as an investment destination, what the legal and political risks are of doing business there and how the new administration and free trade agreements could affect inward foreign investment. They will also address the complexities of running a business in Vietnam, reviewing operational risks from investigations Kroll has conducted, Duane Morris's experiences with respect to due diligence of Vietnamese partners, compliant and workable solutions.
How to defend against digital hijack of your business data, and what to do if you get hit
Cyber criminals have discovered the perfect tool to force modern business owners into the vice of extortion – drop malware onto an unsuspecting network to encrypt all the data and demand payment to provide the key to unlock the data. The attacked business has two choices; either lose access to years of data or pay a ransom to get the data back. The cyber criminals bank on the fact that businesses will pay to rescue their hijacked data.
Such attacks or ransomware are on the rise, fuelled by successful extortion payments. The types of businesses being targeted are expanding, and the delivery methods used to infect systems are becoming increasingly sophisticated. There are also many different types of malware now available; Crypto Wall also known as Crowti, Crypto Locker, FakeBSOD and The FBI scam.
Preparation is essential to surviving such attacks and monitoring of systems is needed to prevent them.
Identifying social compliance issues, particularly forced labor and human trafficking in supply chains, continues to be a significant problem for business, particularly when sourcing from opaque and non-transparent emerging markets. Civil society is playing a large part in increasing awareness and pressuring politicians to introduce and enforce legislation, and is gradually highlighting the issue as a problem which needs to be addressed both by governments and the business community.
Kroll has been researching and working on this issue for a number of years and believes that businesses should be taking the issue as seriously as other forms of compliance.
Will Myanmar’s historic elections outcome bring durable change to the country? Who are the forces at play, and what is at stake in the negotiations around the transition to NLD rule? How will the influence of the Myanmar military change (and the companies that have chosen to affiliate with them) change after the election – and what impact will this have on the economy, on US sanctions, and on business?
Join Kroll for an hour long webinar to discuss the historic NLD victory, the state-of-play-among political actors, and the implications for business.
In this webinar, you’ll hear from Kroll cyber security expert Jonathan Fairtlough. He’ll discuss how recent data breaches are showing the need for organizations and advisors to prepare for an attack, and know how to respond when your clients...and sometimes their families, are put at risk.
In this webinar, you’ll hear from cyber security expert Jonathan Fairtlough. He’ll discuss how recent data breaches are showing just how unprepared organizations are in understanding where their data is held, and how to respond when your clients...and sometimes their families, are put at risk.
Jonathan and Kroll have experience with complex cyber investigations, including computer intrusions, insider attacks, ransomware and malware outbreaks, Internet fraud and theft of trade secrets. He has worked with clients on a wide range of cyber concerns, including security policy and implementation, incident investigation and detection, forensic analysis, malware analysis, and breach threat reduction.
Too often cyber security is viewed as an issue relevant only for businesses holding customer data. The reality is quite different. Hackers regularly target all electronic information and systems in a company, and even attack executives and their relationships. Those targeted attacks can put executives at risk of being extorted or manipulated.
More specifically, cyber criminals can wreak havoc by leveraging an executive’s family and community connections, social media, and publicly available digital information. Cyber criminals can even impersonate the executive and compromise highly valued investor or board member relationships.
Learn best practices from experts on how to defend against cyber theft across all spheres, respond to and investigate theft-related breaches or seek legal remedy to recover losses.
