Journalist who exposed the Panama Papers case to speak at SCCE’s European Compliance & Ethics Institute Journalist who exposed the Panama Papers case to speak at SCCE’s European Compliance & Ethics Institute
12/18/2018 9:49:27 AM-Minneapolis, Minn. --- December 18, 2018 --- The fallout from the 2016 Panama Papers investigation is ongoing, as indicated by recent business news headlines. Hear from the journalist who broke the case, Bastian Obermayer, at the 2019 European Compliance & Ethics Institute (ECEI), 10-13 March 2019 in Berlin, Germany. Mr. Obermayer is a featured speaker at ECEI, the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics’ (SCCE’s) annual event for the European compliance and ethics community. His presentation, “How We Broke the Panama Papers,” will cover how a cryptic message turned into one of journalism’s biggest scoops and how a year-long investigation involving 400 journalists was kept secret. “As recent indictments show, there are numerous lessons for compliance officers from the Panama Papers investigation,” SCCE CEO Gerry Zack notes. “But hearing Bastian tell the inside story of how the high-stakes investigation unfolded makes for a compelling tale and adds much to the published acc... - Read More
Three Things I Learned at the 6th Annual SCCE Compliance & Ethics Institute Three Things I Learned at the 6th Annual SCCE Compliance & Ethics Institute
5/16/2018 10:27:00 AM- By Ruth Steinholtz AreteWork LLP Reflections from the 6th Annual European Compliance & Ethics Institute – aka  #SCCEecei  – where I also delivered a session on  # EthicalBusinessRegulation  and Culture Change. I have always been fascinated by the forces within organisations that come together to create outcomes – especially catastrophic outcomes. I had a parallel career in crisis management, which gave me the opportunity to dream up terrible situations for my colleagues to cope with in live exercises. It helped us prepare for the unexpected. Now that I am continuing my crisis prevention work in the field of ethics, I focus on the human and cultural factors that cause that cause ethical misconduct. Read full blog post - Read More
Ruth Steinholtz on Ethical Business Practice and Regulation [Podcast] Ruth Steinholtz on Ethical Business Practice and Regulation [Podcast]
4/26/2018 10:56:00 AM- There is a lot written and discussed about ethical business practices.  Not so much, though, if anything, on ethical business regulation. Ruth Steinholtz  of  AreteWork  wants to change that.  A former general counsel with a passion for ethics, she works with numerous companies on making their values real.   She is also the co-author of  Ethical Business Practice and Regulation . In her book, and in this podcast, Ruth argues for the development of a new approach to regulation based on informed trust.  In a nutshell, companies with a strong commitment to ethical, compliant behavior, and, critically, with the evidence to prove it, should be able to bring their data to regulators.  The goal:  to lay a foundation of trust, which leads to a more constructive relationship both day to day, and when things go bad. Listen in for her thought-provoking ideas that are already being piloted with one government. Listen to the podcast - Read More
SCCE’s New Data Governance Conference SCCE’s New Data Governance Conference
4/19/2018 1:23:00 PM-By Gerry Zack Incoming CEO, SCCE & HCCA It seems like every day there is something else to think or worry about in the cyber world.  Whether it’s the misuse of data, a ransomware attack, hacking, or protecting trade secrets, it’s hard not to read something about it these days. Likewise, for compliance professionals, it’s hard not to worry about whether your organization’s policies, procedures and defenses are where they should be. Read full blog post - Read More
What Does Brexit Mean to Brethics? What Does Brexit Mean to Brethics?
4/10/2018 1:28:00 PM-By J. Rollins ETHIX360 CEO The past 18 months since first blogging on this have past in the wink of an eye and we are now in the final month prior to GDPR taking effect.  Although for many of you the concerns are still the same, there has been some progress in some of the points I made.  The biggest being in the UK discussion.  On that front, despite the UK triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty (this is actually what they did and is commonly called “Brexit”), the timing of the completion of their negotiations to leave the union are not complete and when May 25 rolls around next month and GDPR takes effect, the UK will technically still be a member state.  Read full blog post - Read More
2018 European Compliance & Ethics Institute Guest Blogs: Adventures in Networking 2018 European Compliance & Ethics Institute Guest Blogs: Adventures in Networking
3/28/2018 10:40:00 AM-By Sally Afonso Networking is hard for me. Introverted by nature and workaholic by habit, I’m more at ease behind a computer or in a conference room. I’ve been guilty of calling networking a “soft” skill. This year, however, I’m pushing myself outside of my compliance comfort zone – and venturing into networking has been a key challenge. I’ve learned just how “hard” networking is, both in terms of difficulty to master as a competency, as well as in how much concrete benefit there is in practicing it. Read full blog post - Read More

3/28/2018 10:34:00 AM-By Jane Mitchell @JMitchComms I am reflecting on my best take-away from Frankfurt and the 2018 ECEI. Tempted though I am by the cornucopia of wonderful chocolate Easter goodies that I have brought back to England, gratification will be short-lived, so my mind turns to more sustainable delights.

Frank Brown on the Changing Global Compliance Environment [Podcast] Frank Brown on the Changing Global Compliance Environment [Podcast]
3/15/2018 10:45:00 AM- The world is often a difficult place in which to do business.  Many countries lack the rule of law, are corrupt, and make it hard for a company to do business and to do so lawfully and ethically. The  Center for International Private Enterprise  (CIPE) is trying to make a difference.  Its mission is to strengthen “…democracy around the globe through private enterprise and market-oriented reform.”  That mission puts them on the forefront of the fight against corruption. In this podcast,  Frank Brown , the Director of the Anti-Corruption and Governance Center at CIPE, provides an overview of the Center for International Private Enterprise and its work outside the US. The podcast shares some notable progress.  As he explains, there is a very strong anti-corruption wave in Indonesia, and the KPK, the anti-corruption authority there, has had a 100% conviction rate.  In so doing, it has become a model for much of the world. In this far-ranging conversation he discusses: ... - Read More
Robert Bond on the European General Data Protection Regulation [Podcast] Robert Bond on the European General Data Protection Regulation [Podcast]
3/12/2018 10:14:00 AM- The EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is due to come into effect on May 25, 2018, and it is a game changer for companies in Europe and around the world. Robert Bond , a member of the board of the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics and Health Care Compliance Association, and a partner at the law firm of Bristows in London, explains that it is a different regime since it applies both to controllers of data and the processors who manage the data. Notably, the new GDPR is also extraterritorial, applying to businesses in non-EU countries if they are handling the data of EU citizens.  Companies in the US, accustomed to dealing with US requirements and having privacy policies based on US laws, may be in for a bit of a shock and will need to do some work to see how their policies measure up to this new, higher bar. As Robert explains in the podcast, to start complying, companies need to understand the who, what, when, why, where and how of what data they are... - Read More
