We take things a different way in this episode as the commentators throw out five topics for consideration by the group. Last week we had topics from Jay and Matt; this week from Jonathan and Tom.
Topics from Jonathan:
- The right to be forgotten in the EU;
- Big data and compliance-the EU regulators wrap anti-trust issues into data privacy;
- A wrap up for the 6 years since the Bribery Act came into existence; and
- The troubling inclination of UK regulators to engage in burden shifting in anti-bribery cases.
Topics from Tom:
- In view of Trump’s abysmal performance at the G-20, will other countries ramp up anti-corruption enforcement?
- Will the new book by Jesse Eisinger The Chickenshit Club make any difference?
- Three months ago the SFO appeared to be in trouble. Now it is leading the anti-corruption charge. Tying into Q1 above, will we see more aggressive enforcement out of the UK?
- Now that compliance has become inculcated into the business process of most energy companies, with the attendant benefits, will there a pull back on the business side of things.
- Can a new comer really win the AL? What does the panel see in the second half of the season?
