Recent DOJ compliance policy makes the case for proactive monitoring

By Eric R. Feldman, CCEP-I, CFE

On June 1, 2020, the Department of Justice (DOJ), without any fanfare, quietly slipped out its 2020 revision of the Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs guidance.[1] As with its predecessors in 2017 and 2019, this update further refines the DOJ’s guidance to companies about how often they should review the structure of their ethics and compliance programs, the importance of a compliance officer’s access to data, and greater clarity on how companies should integrate mergers and acquisitions into their existing programs and corporate culture.

This third installment of the guidance underscores why and how law enforcement pays such close attention to a company’s ethics, compliance, and anti-fraud activities.

Pay Me Now or Pay Me Later: Eric Feldman Will be Speaking at the 2020 ACFE Virtual Global Fraud Conference — June 22

By AMI News, Eric Feldman Event, Eric Feldman Featured, Events

The 2018 policy memo by U.S. Deputy Attorney General Brian Benczkowski offered companies alternative paths to the traditional mandatory corporate monitorship, and the 2019 DOJ evaluation criteria provide a detailed road map for in-house compliance, ethics and anti-fraud practitioners to implement proactive monitoring for positive resolutions. This session will explore how self-assessment of an organization’s ethics and compliance activities through a proactive monitorship can help demonstrate due diligence to regulators and law enforcement, resulting in both better outcomes and a more effective anti-fraud program.

You will learn how to:
• Implement proactive monitoring as a cost-effective way for companies to strengthen their compliance and ethics programs and anti-fraud activities
• Examine the most critical changes to the DOJ guidance that can help compliance officers and anti-fraud professionals focus their resources and energy on the highest risk areas
• Design a proactive independent monitoring strategy that can lead to better resolutions of enforcement, administrative regulatory actions without the imposition of a monitor

Session Details
Monday, June 22 — 3:55PM – 4:45PM
CPE: 1.0
Ethics CPE: Yes
Session Level: Intermediate
Speaker: Eric Feldman
Field of Study: Behavioral Ethics
Recommended Prerequisite: Knowledge or experience with corporate ethics and compliance programs as a tool to prevent fraud

Transforming corporate cultures by placing CFEs in top echelons — ACFE Board of Regents Interview for Fraud Magazine

By AMI News, Eric Feldman Featured, Eric Feldman Media, Media

AMI’s Eric Feldman sat down with the other members of ACFE’s Board of Regents to discuss the importance of CFE’s in fostering corporate culture. This conversation appears in the September/October issue of FRAUD Magazine.

CFEs can trumpet the age-old “tone at the top” concept, but if top executives aren’t working to transform corporate cultures throughout organizations then fraud prevention and deterrence will continually run up against roadblocks. The members of the ACFE Board of Regents know this from their years of consulting with C-suite execs who want to tackle fraud but also have to wrestle with timid general counsels, fluctuating quarterly reports and concerned stakeholders.

The Board gathered at the beginning of the recent 30th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference to opine on the latest anti-fraud issues during a 90-minute Fraud Magazine interview.
