Pharmaceutical and medical device companies operating overseas are particularly vulnerable to FCPA violations because of the nature of public health systems in many foreign countries where health care systems are owned and operated by the government. Given the fact that employees are in constant contact with the health care providers at different touch points within the organization, there is a need to ensure all interactions are monitored and effective policies are in place to curb any potential violations.
Key speakers at the event include:
William J. Stuckwisch, Assistant Chief Fraud Section, Criminal Division at the U.S. Department of Justice Charles E. Cain, Assistant Director, Division of Enforcement at the United State Securities and Exchange Commission
Gary Johnson, Supervisory Special Agency at the International Corruption Unit, FBIHQ
Jeffrey L. Antoon, Director-Corporate, Internal Audit at Johnson & Johnson
Alexandra Peters, Director, Global Anti-Corruption Program at Medtronic, Inc.
Jeffery D. Williams, Vice President and Assistant General Counsel, Compliance Division at Pfizer Inc.
