Updated annually, the TRACE Bribery Risk Matrix (TRACE Matrix) helps companies assess the potential of bribe demands pertaining to a given country and thus design compliance and due diligence programs tailored to that risk.

In this webinar, Robert Clark, Manager, Legal Research, TRACE, will provide an overview of the highlights of the 2023 TRACE Matrix and share practical strategies for how multinational companies can leverage the Matrix to assess and effectively mitigate bribery risks in the markets in which they operate. Additionally, Mr. Clark will provide guidance on using the online tool, the TRACE Matrix Data Browser to further identify trends and patterns that may be relevant in understanding the risk environment each country presents.
