Few people wake up one day and decide to commit a white-collar crime. Rather, good — and even highly revered — professionals are more likely to gradually slide down a slippery slope of ethical lapses into the realm of misconduct and criminality.
Two professionals will tell their behind-the-crime tales of how they found themselves on the wrong side of the law:
- Richard Bistrong, a former sales executive in the security and defense industry convicted of violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
- Rashmi Airan, a Columbia Law School graduate and former practicing attorney convicted of conspiracy to commit bank fraud
Joining them will be:
- William McMurry of the FBI to offer an enforcement perspective and insights on the red flags and ethical cues that individuals and compliance officers should monitor to prevent white-collar crime.
- Serina Vash, former prosecutor and current executive director of NYU Law School's program on corporate compliance and enforcement, whose research tackles the issue of deterring crime.
The program will be moderated by Fordham Law Adjunct Professor Gerald Manwah.
