Masterclass on Assessing Corruption Risk


“corruption is corrosive”

Grant Griffiths

As law enforcement efforts are being stepped up, including an ever-growing number of charges being brought against company directors and senior executives for bribery and corruption globally, Risk Assessments have emerged as a vital tool in helping protect against falling foul of the law.

Corruption Risk Assessments are an invaluable part of strong anti-corruption and bribery efforts and establish the basis for identifying and reporting an organisations’ vulnerable spots by providing early detection and quick action. This enables boards to get behind efforts to stamp out corruption and save millions. For corporate liability regimes, properly conducted risk assessments provide the assurance to prosecutors that an organisation is serious about addressing corruption.

The Speak Up Academy offers a virtual and interactive masterclass with experts Grant Griffiths and Animah Kosai. We explain risk assessment within a corruption context, and guide you on how to identify, assess and mitigate corruption risks for your organisation.
