Obtain and understanding of Foreign Direct Investment and how Forensic Risk Assessment Skills play a role in National Security.
Foreign Direct Investment plays a key role in ensuring that Florida remains globally competitive. With South Florida acting as an international trade hub and logistics gateway, these links have made it a global investment destination. Florida has further enabled this environment through low-cost, and pro-business regulatory / tax conditions
With these strong economic development strategies, particularly as South Florida attracts investments in logistics, infrastructure, biotech, advanced manufacturing, and high-tech / data-rich industries, there must be an awareness of the national security investment review process (CFIUS).
In order to be awarded full CPE credit, you must respond to four of the five polling questions asked during the program.
Speaker Details: John Lash, Principal at Control Risks - Compliance, Forensics and Intelligence, Americas region.

He leads teams serving in independent audit and monitor roles as required by mitigation terms and provides guidance to clients during various phases of CFIUS evaluation, submission, and review.
John applies his experience in strategic threat management, cybersecurity, and business strategy to advise clients on evaluating and mitigating global trade risk, focusing on maximizing opportunity value. He provides transactional guidance by performing operational and economic impact studies, in addition to evaluating current-state and target-state corporate security models. John also advises clients on comprehensive mitigation structures, including implementation and assessment considerations that may impact national security standards or deal economics.
