Corporate Liability Provision: "What it is, and how will my company be affected?"

6 September 2018 | 9.00 AM – 1.00 PM
Venue: Sime Darby Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur

On 4 May 2018, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (Amendment) Act 2018 was gazetted, introducing corporate liability for corruption offences for the first time in Malaysia. Once enforcement begins, company directors and senior management will be held personally liable for acts of corruption (or ‘gratification’) committed by the company, either by personnel or parties acting on behalf the organisation. Penalties include fines and prison sentences of up to 20 years for those in charge of the company at the time of the offence. Companies which have been proactive in preventing corruption occurring can present the defence of having “adequate procedures” in place. These consist of the key elements of an anti-bribery system, comprising primarily policies and procedures as set out by ISO 37001, a recently published certifiable standard. This seminar explains the details of corporate liability and the procedures which companies should put into place in preparation for the enforcement of the MACC (Amendment) Act 2018. The speaker, Dr Mark Lovatt, is an internationally-recognised expert in private sector corruption, and a Lead Implementer for ISO 37001.

Powering The Winds of Change: The Shift to Cyber Resilience

5 – 6 September 2018
Venue: Conference Hall 1, Sasana Kijang, Bank Negara Malaysia

Increased complexities in banking regulations and the emergence of new financial technologies have brought about fresh challenges in addressing the risks associated with banks.

It has become imperative, with the rapidly evolving nature of cyberthreats, that financial institutions need to work harder than just focussing on strengthening their cybersecurity efforts to keep financial systems and their ecosystems safe. There is a strong global push by regulators, governments and leading security organisations to adopt a more holistic approach to addressing cyberthreats by building stronger cyber resilience — the new gold security standard — to mitigate the risk of cyberattacks. This event will provide insight into the latest issues and trends in cybersecurity, cyberattacks and how financial organisations can become cyber resilient by adopting various strategic approaches, which include business planning, information security, organisational governance, assessment of digital systems and more.
