The conference will focus on the highly regulated utilities and energy industries, where compliance topics can be specific and focused on areas that are not always addressed at the all-industry level. It offers attendees the opportunity to discuss these specific content areas in more detail while exchanging ideas with others facing the same regulations.
Among the topics being discussed are the federal sentencing guidelines in today’s compliance world (with John R. Steer, ret., vice chair, U.S. Sentencing Commission); how social media compliance can grow your business (Sarah Carter, VP, Actiance, Inc.); the impact and challenges of the Dodd Frank conflict minerals provision on the energy sector (Charles Riepenhoff, Jr., managing director, KPMG LLP); strategies for addressing human error in utility compliance programs (Mary-James Young, senior compliance and regulatory counsel, Vectren Corp.); and beyond the third-party due diligence report (Scott A. Lane, principal & CEO, The Red Flag Group).
