  • What Does a World-Class Compliance Program for Endowments Look Like? What Does a World-Class Compliance Program for Endowments Look Like? Michael Lukasek, CPA, Managing Director, Office of Investments, University of Pennsylvania Recorded: Jul 15 2016 55 mins
    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.

    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.

  • Ransomware Ransomware Jonathan Fairtlough, Managing Director, Kroll, and Brett Williams, Senior Regional Security Engineer, Carbon Black Recorded: Mar 10 2016 62 mins
    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.

  • Investigating human trafficking in supply chains Investigating human trafficking in supply chains Richard Dailly, Kroll Managing Director Recorded: Jan 27 2016 52 mins
    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.

  • The New Age of Executive Protection: Cyber Risk Security The New Age of Executive Protection: Cyber Risk Security Jonathan Fairtlough, Los Angeles Office Head, Kroll - Brian Finch, Partner, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP. Recorded: Nov 4 2015 64 mins
    Cyber Security: Keep yourself safe on all fronts.

    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.
