In a podcast series sponsored by Affiliated Monitors, Inc. (AMI), Tom Fox visits with Eric Feldman, Senior Vice President of AMI. They look at the Department of Justice (DOJ) Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs, (the “2019 Guidance”), which was released in April 2019. Over the next five podcasts we will explore what the 2019 Guidance changes are from the Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Program (2017 Guidance), released in February 2017, the structure and emphasis of the 2019 Guidance and what it means for the compliance practitioner going forward.
Listen to the full series below, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
