Update on Compliance Week events in 2021: Please see our schedule (below) for the first half of the year; all events will be conducted virtually.

The Science of Workplace Investigations™

Compliance Week 2021


May 11-13 | Virtual


The annual gathering has been recognized as the premier peer-to-peer compliance event to spotlight compliance leaders and their programs. Designed to help senior compliance executives build and manage their compliance and risk programs more effectively, the 800 to 1,000 attendees—corporate compliance, legal, audit and risk executives—share best practices to mitigate and build value within their company. Our sessions are highly interactive, with Q&As, break-out panels, and practitioner-only workshops. It is the event for corporate compliance, legal, audit, and risk officers at global public companies.


Summit on Third-Party Risk Management


June 29-30 | Virtual


The seventh iteration of this popular event will explore issues such as how to design and implement a third-party risk management program; how much you should expect to spend on safeguarding third-party practices; how to evaluate vendors and assess risk levels; and how to avoid common pitfalls in areas like bribery, misrepresentations in financials, and more.


2020 event recap

The coronavirus pandemic significantly altered the business landscape, requiring Compliance Week to overhaul the way in which it conducts events. With just two months to prepare, we adjusted our National Conference in May to be conducted fully online, and we followed the event with a successful virtual summit on third-party risk management in September and our annual European conference in November (video recap below).
