Course Overview:

Corruption and bribery are major obstacles to the development and successful operation of an organisation. Organisations are increasingly expected to communicate to their stakeholders, internally and externally, the measures and efforts they are deploying to counter and detect corruption and bribery. It is also of great importance that organisations put in place and review their anti-corruption and anti-bribery policies and procedures to ensure compliance with all relevant regulations.

Join us for this 1-day training program to acquire the knowledge, skills and techniques you need to help your organisation develop an effective Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption (ABAC) program.

Compliance, risk, internal controls and other professionals who are tasked with the responsibility to develop or enhance the company’s process to manage bribery and corruption risks.
