The accounting and corporate scandals of recent years reinforce the importance of corporate governance and the role of the board of directors in responding to allegations of misconduct. Boards provide the highest level of oversight and governing authority for public companies. Their oversight role is even more important in our current environment of increased whistleblower reporting and bounties from the Dodd-Frank Act, regulatory enforcement actions by the SEC, criminal investigations by the DOJ, as well as the focus on improved corporate governance.
In this course, examine the board's role in responding to allegations of corporate misconduct. Walk away with the tools for navigating the complex issues involved, and gain an understanding of when board-managed internal investigations are required.
What you will learn:
Role of the board of directors and audit committee in ensuring appropriate compliance procedures and investigating corporate misconduct
Current risk environment for organizations and boards
When to authorize a board-managed internal investigation
Best practices in conducting an independent investigation
Role of external counsel and consultants in assisting boards in ensuring a culture of ethics and compliance
