October 2018: Issue Four
Integrity should be at the core of every organisation’s risk, compliance and anti-fraud programme.
In this edition, we focus on the Financial Reporting Council’s recent Good Corporate Governance Code highlighting how governance should be implemented, reported and measured by listed companies both in the UK and abroad. The key message from the Code is to be transparent. Demonstrating good governance not only reinforces an organisation’s reputation but provides it with opportunities over others. Even if you are not part of a listed company, the Code highlights useful areas for SMEs to consider on improving their journey to integrity.
With the Code in mind, we also share some key red flags, highlighted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), of officers, directors and employees who commit fraud against an organisation from within – the very people who were entrusted to protect its assets and resources. Can you spot any red flags in your organisation?
GDPR continues to be a hot topic, even though the legislation was introduced back in May. Richard Bell, our Privacy & Security Director, reviews several common themes clients have highlighted since the introduction of the new rules.
Cate Wells, our Managing Director in Dubai, shares some recent anti-counterfeiting investigations, successes and brand protection news from our Dubai Office.
