Practices of High Quality Ethics and Compliance Programs - Breakfast Session - Thursday, Oct 21, 2021
Location: Delta Hotel, Verdi Room, 1919 Saskatchewan Drive, Regina SK
08:30h - 10:00h

Practices of High-Quality Ethics and Compliance Programs

Sponsored by the FMI Regina Chapter

 

Delta Hotel Regina, Verdi Room, 1919 Saskatchewan Drive

Thursday,  October 21, 2021

Synopsis:  

​​Compliance staff and Internal auditors are constantly drawn into organizational dialogue regarding the boundaries of ethical conduct in their businesses.  Companies continue to find themselves in headlines that describe misalignment between what is expected to be appropriate business conduct and their generally unacceptable performance or outcomes.  Financial and audit professionals must sort through an abundance of organizational policies, programs and systems all designed to monitor ethical conduct.  It is a daunting challenge to obtain reasonable assurance on the full range of ethics and compliance programs.  Where do you start, or should you avoid it all because it is too difficult to assess?  

The session will outline the key characteristics of leading ethics, compliance, and fraud risk management programs.  It will also describe the tools and techniques used by organizations to ensure business activities are performed with high regard for “acceptable” outcomes, however those may be defined. Stakeholder expectations will be presented along with key factors impacting ethical business practices including corporate culture, ESG reporting, data governance and regulatory prudence.      

Robert Kuling will draw on his corporate and professional services experience to describe practical and cost-effective strategies to deliver high value assessments on the state of ethics, compliance and fraud risk management in their organizations.
