Minneapolis, MN---July 8, 2014---The Government is descending upon the 2014 Compliance & Ethics Institute, but not for the reasons many would think. Leaders from the SEC, DOJ, FBI, NSA, and NIH won’t be there just to lecture the private sector about new laws and regulations. They’ll also be there to share their own experiences with compliance programs as well as to spell out how government and the private sector can work together in key areas like preventing cyber crime, the Society of Corporate Compliance and Ethics (SCCE) announced today.

“We’ve turned a corner when it comes to the government’s relationship with compliance and ethics programs,” said SCCE’s CEO Roy Snell. “We’re now working together closely to ensure that organizations – both in business and in government – have effective compliance programs, understand the role of the compliance officer, and learn from each other.”

From September 14 to 17, 2014, government speakers, some themselves compliance professionals, will join with the compliance and ethics community at the Hyatt Regency Chicago for the Compliance & Ethics Institute to discuss a myriad of topics ranging from cyber security to whistleblowers to corporate compliance and ethics training programs.
