Join us to hear about crime families, penny stock boiler rooms, international money launderers, narco-traffickers, oligarchs, dictators, warlords, and kleptocrats.

Failure to consider fraud and corruption risk can upend your strategy and lead to disaster.

Rarely do we hear or read about the names of third-party bribe payers or the names of their companies. Global companies, particularly those who ship products internationally or rely on third-parties in other ways to bring their products and services to market, are heavily reliant on virtual armies of third-party intermediaries to operate internationally. They are a necessary evil who can act on an organization’s behalf, represent t...
