Spring 2019 Best Practice Forum

/Spring 2019 Best Practice Forum

Technology in E&C

Do you use technology in your ethics & compliance program, in any capacity? Is your technology strategy more reactive or proactive? How can you make the most of it to advance your E&C goals?

Technology is changing the way we live and work.  This event is designed to equip you to utilize new technologies in your organization, even if you have a shoestring budget.

Join ECI and a group of industry expert speakers for the Spring 2019 Best Practice Forum – Technology in E&C.

This event was specifically designed to take a deep dive in to the evolution of E&C programs and the tools you use every day.

In what ways have these technological advances helped you achieve your goals? Or helped your employees achieve theirs?

Thought-provoking speakers, experienced in implementing new technology to drive ethics & compliance goals, provide industry-leading insight and show you the proven best practices that can lead you to your own successes.

Whether you are the CECO of a Fortune 50 with a budget to match, or an E&C practitioner in a smaller organization that needs more evidence to justify your next big tech implementation, this is the event for you.

What do your peers think?

More than 90% of attendees to our Fall 2018 Best Practice Forum rated that event favorably and agreed that it was a valuable use of their time. Best Practice Forums allow you the opportunity to personally connect and network with your colleagues from around the world – colleagues that share the same issues and challenges that you face every day.

The Changing State of Technology in E&C

Technology has become a part of the landscape in every component of ethics and compliance programs. At the same time, it presents challenges to E&C leaders – is technology appropriate for a particular application or process, how will we pay for it and justify the investment, how will we know if it is effective, and how must data and process governance change to accomodate these powerful tools? These are just some of the issues we consider through a panel of practitioners and interactive dialogue among forum attendees.
