    Those involved in bribery and corruption along with other financial crimes do not openly advertise their misdeeds. One will not find “expenses for paying a bribe” in the subject line or justification field of a report or approval request. People involved in corrupt activities will use creative and sometimes sophisticated methods to hide their actions or cover them up under the guise of a legitimate or innocuous transaction.

    The domestic and international business landscape has changed. The traditional business challenges still exist, but companies must now navigate more complex and treacherous regulatory, legal and ethical waters that can threaten the best business plans. With new laws, increased demand for transparency and accountability along with more aggressive regulatory and law enforcement action on corrupt activities, businesses can no longer ignore the need for a robust compliance program.
