CRM: FRAUD: Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) An Overview The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended, 15 U.S.C. §§ 78dd-1, et seq. ("FCPA"), was enacted for the purpose of making it unlawful for certain classes of persons and entities to make payments to foreign government officials to assist in obtaining or retaining business.

Since 1977, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA have applied to all U.S. persons and certain foreign issuers of securities. With the enactment of certain amendments in 1998, the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA now also apply to foreign firms and persons who cause, directly or through agents, an act in furtherance of such a corrupt payment to take place within the territory of the United States.

The FCPA also requires companies whose securities are listed in the United States to meet its accounting provisions.

California Assembly Bill No.1710 (AB 1710) was signed into law on September 30, 2014, and amends California’s existing data protection laws, in part by setting forth requirements on what to do if protected data is exposed.

AB1710 takes effect this January 1st, 2015, and there has already been much speculation and debate regarding several key pieces of the legislation. One such point of debate is the wording that amends what must be done if data is breached, which now states that a breached entity must “offer to provide appropriate identity theft prevention and mitigation services, if any, to the affected person at no cost for not less than 12 months if the breach exposed or may have exposed specified personal information.” It is the use of “if any” as a modifier that is causing contention; i.e., does this phrasing mandate services, or simply that entities choosing to offer services must do so for 12 months? The de facto offering is, of course, credit monitoring. - Stats about all US cities - real estate, relocation info, crime, house prices, cost of living, races, home value estimator, recent sales, income, photos, schools, maps, weather, neighborhoods, and more.
