Your UK & Ireland SAP User Group is proud to support this SAP event.

When the UK Bribery Act comes into force on 1st July this year, it will become a criminal offence to offer, ask for or accept an inducement for acting improperly. Organisations may be deemed to have broken the law just for failing to prevent bribery by someone associated with them – even if the business happens outside the UK.

The biggest challenge for any company (apart from human nature itself) is having sufficient operational visibility and procedural controls to prevent corruption – and proving it has taken all reasonable precautions to do so.

Helping you take proportionate action

To help you safeguard your corporate reputation and mitigate the potential for criminal liability without needless complication, we're inviting you to attend our timely Anti Bribery and Corruption briefing.

The half–day agenda will offer pragmatic, hands–on guidance to help you adopt a risk–based approach to compliance and maintain transparency of interactions with the appropriate controls and monitoring. Attendees can anticipate:

  • An update on what the legislation means in reality for both UK and foreign companies
  • 'How Much is Enough?' – an overview of the challenges organisations will face in defining and identifying risks, and practical steps to take in preparation
  • 'Building a Bribery Act Compliance Programme' – an inspired exploration of the enabling role of technologies in minimising risk exposure, detecting potential violations and meeting your legal obligations
  • An insightful use–case demonstration of how SAP's enterprise Governance, Risk & Compliance solutions can streamline and automate the monitoring of key risk indicators and provide robust process controls across your entire organisation
  • A lively discussion with a panel of experts.

You'll discover how preventative measures need not unduly disrupt your day–to–day operations – in fact, the right GRC tools and methodologies can actively drive improvements in business performance and effectiveness.

Places are strictly limited and demand is expected to be high, given the far–reaching nature of the impending legislation, so we urge you to register early to guarantee your attendance.
