Jonathan and Kortney sit down at SCCE’s European Compliance & Ethics Institute to discuss the impact Brexit will have on compliance programs, including;
- Not getting bogged down by the prevailing uncertainty surrounding Brexit;
- Why we should focus on the certainties like GDPR, Data Transfer Deals, and the UK Bribery Act;
- The prediction that the EU may be kinder during Brexit than the UK initially feared;
- How and why to apply lessons learned from EU accession countries;
- The article 50 filings and the 2-year plan going forward;
- Planning for business agreements that will survive Brexit;
- EU/UK/Brexit attorney-client privilege issues;
- The loss of the common-law voice in the European community (and who will speak up for the UK and US now);
- Potential threats to US corporations;
- Why planning is always the best idea – and why your business should be putting Brexit on the agenda; and
- Great resources to help you work through the compliance challenges during the Brexit process.
