Tone at the top can set a precedent for an ethical corporate culture, but a formal ethics program provides a clear framework for the organization’s expectations, policies and potential consequences.  While compliance and ethics are the foundation of such programs, the pervasive threat of fraud makes it critical to also integrate fraud-focused initiatives into the program, including anti-fraud and whistleblower policies. 

Learn best practices for creating an effective compliance and ethics program that incorporates anti-fraud measures. This two-day course will explore the essential steps your organization needs to take in developing a program that will effectively foster ethical behavior, promote compliance and deter fraudulent activities by your employees.

You Will Learn How To:  

  • Assess an organization's ethical and compliance culture
  • Create an effective anti-fraud, compliance and ethics policy 
  • Structure the organization to reinforce a culture of ethics and compliance
  • Implement a whistleblower reporting system
  • Design and conduct effective ethics and compliance training
  • Address ethical breaches and noncompliance
  • Monitor the anti-fraud, compliance and ethics programs and remediate any identified deficiencies  


Who Should Attend:  

  • Certified Fraud Examiners and other anti-fraud professionals
  • Governance, risk management and compliance officers
  • Internal auditors 
  • Attorneys and legal professionals

 

SPEAKERS:

Eric Feldman

Eric Feldman joined Affiliated Monitors after retiring from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in 2011. Eric had a distinguished thirty-two-year career with both the Executive and Legislative branches of the federal government. He has served in executive positions with Offices of Inspector General at the Department of Defense, Defense Intelligence Agency, and CIA, and was the longest serving Inspector General of the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) from 2003-2009. At the NRO, he presided over a highly successful procurement fraud prevention and detection program, widely recognized by the Department of Justice as a model throughout the federal government.

In 2009, Eric was appointed Senior Advisor to the Director of the NRO for Procurement Integrity where he helped the Director ensure that the NRO’s industrial partners were meeting their integrity and ethics responsibilities required by law and federal regulations. His work involved the real-time assessment of corporate ethics and compliance programs at over forty government contractors including some of the world’s largest corporations in the aerospace, military and public contracting fields.

During his tenure as a Federal Inspector General, Eric worked with the Department of Justice in establishing programs to prevent and detect fraud in the federal acquisition program. As Inspector General, he helped to recover millions of taxpayer dollars in matters involving overpricing, kickbacks, and other forms of fraud.

A former Senior Intelligence Service Officer, Mr. Feldman is a 1995 graduate of the Federal Executive Institute, and is both a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) and a Certified Inspector General (CIG).

He is a member of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of the Association of Inspectors General, and was the founding President of the California Chapter.
