The Ethics Leaders Approach to Identify and Prevent Corruption

If you’ve been the victim of bribery and corruption, or you think you could be targeted again and don’t know how to prevent it, do you believe your anti-corruption measures aren’t strong enough but are unclear on additional measures that should be introduced, then understanding the typologies of corruption and it’s links to fraud and other financial crime and creating your approach to identify and prevent future corruption risk is essential.

Here's The Thing: Responding to Corruption Can Be Overwhelming

In addition to the many methods in which corruption, fraud and financial crime can be committed against an organisation, recognising where you can be targeted within an organisations procurement and payment systems and project can be overwhelming. Who within your organisation can influence and manipulate your procurement or anti-corruption systems, so designing your approach is essential.

When all is said and done ethics leaders just want to prevent corruption with minimal cost and impact to their organisation. In fact, when it comes to preventing corruption are you convinced that the blockers of change want you to fail.

So Make It Simple

Use Our 16 Steps to Build Your Anti-Corruption Framework


Reduce your risk and get results faster

The 16 step solution has been developed around an organisation and national anti-corruption framework that takes a step by step approach in identifying corruption and preventing future risk. Follow these steps and let the data drive your anti-corruption measures.


Driver of ethics and leadership

Training and mentoring in this approach with anti-corruption leaders and implementers can be used to support and build anti-corruption relaltionships, engagement, community and culture building.


Anti-Corruption best practice

Introduction of anti-corruption framework training and mentoring as a national response to corruption risk can have a number of positive outcomes including the central coordination and measurement of organisation performance, sharing best practice and building an anti-corruption community and culture that creates an increased opportunity to collect and share information on corruption risks and trends.

It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data! -
Sherlock Holmes


Having worked in the anti-corruption environment for 25 years in a number of roles that included as head of an anti-corruption unit, head of a money laundering team and as head of an intelligence capability, one of the areas of learning particularly working alongside a prevention team is that the greatest value for any organisation is a prevention approach.

Recognising the value of education and engagement with staff and internal stakeholders that there was a greater opportunity to identify and prevent risk. Not only is there reduced cost to this approach but also it has greater impact in preventing future corruption and fraud through engagement and information sharing. 

Unfortunately, my peers didn’t see it this way and placed little importance on building a prevention approach and too much on their own business interests. The problem with this disjointed approach is that your always guaranteed to repeat the same type of actions and departments and organisations hit by corruption will never learn how to prevent it in the future. 

Unable to affect positive change I made the difficult decision of leaving an organisation that I’d worked for for over 20 years. Setting up my own business and building this approach for clients took some time but the first indication that I’d done the right thing was being invited to lead the British Standard working group to draft the new standard on Procurement Fraud Controls.

This year of research and development reaffirmed by belief that the prevention approach and building anti-corruption and counter procurement fraud frameworks is the best approach for all organisations to identify and prevent these risks.

How to identify the extent of corruption risk

Once you understand the importance of frameworks when looking at corruption risk, everything becomes simpler when you’re assessing what the response should be.

Although every client has different needs and challenges whether it is an ongoing bribery risk or suspicion, concerns over controls weakness or a lack of expertise in this field the method of approach is consistent when looking at each risk, the root cause and approach that needs to be introduced to identify and prevent future risk.
