    • Core Labs 6316 Windfern Rd. Houston, TX 77040

    Topic:

    The Panama Papers, Shell Companies, and the Continuing Risks to Organizations:

    The Panama Papers revealed in 2016 that there is a global network of individuals, entities and organizations whose sole purpose is to assist others in the disguising their ownership and control of third parties. Despite the media focus and follow on investigations, little has been done to mitigate the growing threat of shell company usage by bad actors. This session will discuss recent shell company cases and revelations, why current third party due diligence practices are ill-equipped to handle this growing threat, and what organizations can and should be doing in order to reduce their risk and expose to shell companies.

    Ryan Hubbs, Global Internal Audit Manager, Data Analytics

    About this session: 

    Government regulators and law enforcement are increasingly requiring companies to create effective Ethics and Compliance Programs as a way of addressing the wave of international bribery, corruption, and corporate ethical failures.  Many countries are also joining the United States in more aggressively enforcing these new requirements and Anti-Corruption laws that have been on the books for years.  In many instances, enforcement authorities will provide alternative resolutions and special consideration to companies facing government action who can demonstrate prior comprehensive actions to create a strong ethics and compliance program and ethical culture.  This session will explore the value of using independent assessments and evaluation as a tool to proactively examine  the strength of a company’s ethical culture and the effectiveness of its compliance activities.  Presented by a the former Inspector General of a US federal government agency who now assesses ethics and compliance programs globally, the session will provide participants with real-life case studies and scenarios to teach companies  some of techniques for creating a world-class, integrated anti-fraud program that meets government requirements for Ethics and Compliance.
