Corporate executives are in the line of fire from public and political sentiment. Individual directors and officers are increasingly being called to account for their actions on behalf of their companies. Insider trading, defrauding the markets, bribery and corruption are all themes that have been brought to the forefront in recent years. Individuals should be held responsible…

How did this popular sentiment come about? How are the regulators responding? How is it affecting the way corporations behave?

This session addressed responses to this theme, including the 2015 Yates Memo in the U.S. and prosecutions in the U.K.
