Recorded just after the official start of summer, the Everything Compliance gang returns to its four focused topics. We are joined in this episode by Jonathan Marks, a partner at Marcum LLP. After the commentary we follow with rants.

  1. Matt Kelly is now convinced that the Trump Risk is a real thing. How can compliance professionals help companies in the age where reputational issues can arise literally with one tweet by the President or one administration policy which goes south? 
  1. Tom Fox explores the key themes in the SocGen/Legg Mason FCPA enforcement actions. 
  1. Jonathan Marks joins us a special guest and takes a look at how the US Supreme Court decision in Digital Realty Trust v. Somers severely damaged internal whistleblower/hotline systems as it removed retaliation protection from employees who go internally first and not to the SEC. How can companies win back employee’s trust on this issue?
  1. Jay Rosen considers that both the head of the SEC and No. 2 at DOJ have recently given speeches talking about corporate culture. With this new emphasis by regulators, what should compliance be doing in response?
