    Main Ballroom

    Philip Winterburn, Chief Strategy Officer, Convercent

    If you were one of the few still wondering if a check the box program would be sufficient, the new DOJ guidance has finally put that debate behind us. We now know that creating a check the box program is no longer enough to defend against the regulators, and has never been enough to actually protect your organization and empower your brand. In this presentation, Philip will explore the emerging focus on engaging employees in the ethics and compliance program, how an aligned and engaged workforce delivers on the promise of high performing organizations, attracting and retaining the best talent, and connecting and retaining great customers. Throughout the presentation, we will explore technology innovations and leading practices from several of our customers as well as take a peek into the future and how we see the Ethics and Compliance world continuing to evolve and how it will make an impact with the innovations in AI and Data Science that are emerging.

  • Forrester Research - Protect Whistleblowers For Business Success

    Alla Valente, Analyst, Forrester Research

    Whistleblowers are an essential safety valve in ethical corporate culture. They provide a mechanism for healthy corporate governance by exposing fraud and corruption and, more recently, revealing abusive practices, sexual harassment, discrimination, and privacy issues. But today, they’re imperiled by workplace digitalization that shreds their anonymity and evolving regulations that fall short of legal protection from retaliation.
