In part two of the series, Expecting the Unexpected… How Are Boards Dealing with the Risks and Threats They Face from Within, NEDA Chair Graham Durgan will lead a discussion with speakers from Kroll and the Institute of Business Ethics on the evolving corporate “wrongdoing” landscape and the increasing role of NEDs in overseeing an independent, internal investigation.
