Ethics and compliance is a boardroom issue, with regulatory enforcement strengthening worldwide in tandem with opportunities, sourcing and production.

Understanding compliance challenges

US authorities are actively enforcing the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) globally and other jurisdictions are scaling up enforcement of a broad range of compliance-related legislation. In this climate, managing ethics and compliance risks has become a priority for any international company.

Control Risks’ brings in-depth knowledge of the political, regulatory and operational environments across the world, coupled with decades of experience helping organisations build resilience and respond to crises. The advice we give you is practical and focused on your desired outcomes. We help organisations understand where ethics and compliance challenges may emerge and how to manage and overcome those challenges.

Building effective compliance strategies

How we help you:

  • Advisory support on the most appropriate structure for in-house compliance and investigative functions; training your professionals who work in those roles.
  • Conducting ethics and compliance risk assessments that focus on the realities of your external operating environment and the most appropriate compliance controls. Assessments span all areas of ethics and compliance, including bribery, fraud, corruption, money laundering and human rights.
  • Reviewing company compliance policies and procedures and their implementation. We benchmark against internationally recognised best practices and ensure consistency across an organisation.
  • Using forensic and data analytics techniques to identify weaknesses in compliance controls and provide recommendations to enhance those controls.
  • Designing and delivering engaging and effective ethics, compliance and crisis training workshops. We help create an ethically sound company culture and a solid understanding of compliance that ensures appropriate responses to compliance challenges.
  • Supporting our clients in developing resistance strategies to effectively deal with corrupt demands and other extortive situations, always with a focus on business continuity.
  • Providing insight and helping organisations proactively manage changes in enforcement trends and political developments that affect global governance standards.
