The Mechanics Behind Corruption


The Mechanics Behind Corruption

Wednesday, 1 July 2020 | 1:00 PM EDT

Featuring insights from Martin Kreutner, Dean and Executive Secretary Emeritus of the International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA), this session will provide an exploration of the facts, scenarios and transactions that facilitate corruption within global corporations. Focusing on real-life issues, scenarios and processes that enable corrupt engagements and business dealings, Martin will share practical recommendations for global businesses on how to preemptively spot and revisit your compliance policies and procedures to account for (and ideally eliminate) such issues. Engaging you to consider the antecedents of corruption specific to business process and systems, Martin will share suggestions on how to revisit your approach to compliance and internal procedures with an eye that accounts for the “mechanics behind corruption.”
