18th Annual IBA Anti-Corruption Conference
Ann Sultan will speak at the 18th Annual IBA Anti-Corruption Conference on June 14, 2022, in Paris, France. Sultan will present, as part of a panel, "Internal Investigations in the Post-Pandemic World: Have Best Practices Changed?"
This panel will review new risk scenarios created by the pandemic including bribery and corruption in the use of governmental recovery funds, fraud, cyber-attacks, and human rights violations as well as discuss best practices in conducting internal investigations. The panel will address the use of traditional investigative tools such as search warrants, subpoenas, in-person interviews, and paper documents review as opposed to new digital tools (remote data collection, remote electronic document review, telephonic/video/remote interviews, and electronic evidence) in handing corporate internal investigations.
