    ACR Webinar: DOJ Expectations for Data Retention

    The DOJ’s FCPA Corporate Enforcement Policy contained a surprise for some companies: a requirement to retain business records to receive full cooperation and remediation credit when settling anti-corruption issues with the DOJ. The language in the policy is expansive and has left companies and their counsel unsure of how to meet this expectation, particularly with regard to disappearing messaging apps. Please join The Anti-Corruption Report on Friday, October 26, 2018, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. EST for a complimentary webinar that will focus on the DOJ’s data-retention requirements and how companies can meet them while also meeting business goals. James Koukios, a former Senior Deputy Chief of the Fraud Section at the DOJ and current partner at Morrison Foerster, will offer his perspective, while Jennifer Joyce, a data governance specialist at EY will speak to practical considerations for companies. Megan Zwiebel, the Senior Editor of The Anti-Corruption Report, will moderate. To register, please click here.
