With the recent increase in enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the tightening of anti-corruption legislation in Europe and other regions, knowledge of bribery rules and regulations has never been more critical. In the US alone, the total fines for FCPA violations levied by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in 2013 exceeded $720 million1. Fortunately, effective training and internal communication have been identified as strategies to mitigate your compliance risk.
