The growing role of enforcement agencies and the wide reach of modern media mean that your business is now under more scrutiny than ever before. Are you keeping on top of your bribery, corruption, financial crime and ethical conduct risks?
Along with the UK Bribery Act 2010 and US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), there is country-specific legislation that your business needs to comply with. You might also be required to establish risk-based procedures in your business.
With expanded budgets and more personnel, enforcement teams can investigate more cases. If found in violation of Anti-Bribery and Corruption policies, your business might have to pay significant fines, or you may even face criminal prosecution.
Now, companies need to do the right thing, not just to comply with regulations but also to maintain public trust. In an ever more accessible and transparent world, committing to compliance can set your business apart.
Regulators expect you to proactively update your compliance framework, even if no issues arise. Businesses must demonstrate that they have processes in place to identify and prevent emerging risks.

We advise multinational companies across sectors using the latest technology on concerns associated with bribery, corruption and business conduct. Along with helping you comply with mandatory regulations, our experts can ensure that your compliance framework is effective, robust and fit-for-purpose, before any issues arise.
