Computer Associates Extends Partnership With LRN for Global Legal and Ethics Education

ISLANDIA, N.Y. and LOS ANGELES, June 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Associates International, Inc. , one of the world's largest management software companies, and LRN(R), the provider of legal, compliance and ethics management services, today announced that they have agreed to extend and expand their partnership for enhanced legal, ethics and compliance education. To better serve the more than 15,000 CA associates around the world, LRN will now be providing courses in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese and Portuguese. In addition, LRN will create an online, custom code of conduct course for the company.

"CA is committed to highly ethical business practices and we take this responsibility seriously," said Pat Gnazzo, Computer Associates' senior vice president, business practices and chief compliance officer. "We've extended our partnership with LRN because of the powerful results we have achieved to date, and because we believe LRN can continue to play a crucial, long-term role in our efforts to continue to instill a highly ethical and unified CA corporate culture." LRN will also be providing CA with sophisticated management and reporting tools, enabling the company to better assess the global affect of its program.

"LRN is pleased to expand and extend our relationship with Computer Associates," said Dov Seidman, chairman and CEO of LRN. "With half of all Computer Associates employees based outside the United States, expanded access to our online tools can help all CA employees find common ethical and legal footing, regardless of their time zone. We believe the enhanced global deployment will assist CA in fostering allegiance to the highest standards of conduct, accountability and personal responsibility."

The LRN Legal Compliance and Ethics Center is a Web-based education solution providing a broad array of courses on critical legal, ethics and compliance issues. Because of the difficulty inherent in making a diverse, global workforce fully conversant in all of the laws, regulations and policies a company faces, in addition to legal compliance education, LCEC coursework enables employees to wrestle with ethical dilemmas to help them learn how to identify, evaluate and resolve ethical and legal risks. Over time, workers become practiced "ethical athletes" adept at navigating the gray areas that inevitably arise in the course of business. All coursework is developed, hosted and updated by LRN, dramatically streamlining program implementation and administration, and providing virtually continuous availability wherever an Internet connection exists. LRN also has a world-class professional services team of Knowledge Service Account Executives with extensive backgrounds and experience in a range of highly relevant fields, including sociology, psychology, change management, law, compliance, ethics and distance learning, to assure successful program implementation and ongoing success.
