Does the Board Know Your Name?Web Conference

This presentation will cover:
- Boards must oversee the organization's compliance program. Fostering the Board's engagement with ethics and compliance through periodic, direct, in-person interaction with the ethics and compliance officer can enable the necessary informed oversight, foster the independence of the officer and program, and demonstrate the importance and value of the compliance function to the organization and its leaders.
- Boards need to hear and ask regularly about the compliance and ethics program. The ethics and compliance officer can provide vital insights and information to enable the Board's understanding (directly or through a designated Board Committee) of how the compliance and ethics program is being managed, its resource needs, its autonomy, and its impact on the organization's culture.
- The ethics and compliance officer should provide the Board or designated Board Committee with information about risk tolerance, assessed risks, and reported (alleged) misconduct (e.g. through the report line or other reporting systems). Organizational systems designed to notify the Board (or Designated Committee) promptly about serious risks and threats (e.g., executive misconduct, fraud, potential financial or reputational harm, or the need for an independent investigation) should include the ethics and compliance officer.
