Effective due diligence is the critical component of every fraud detection, anti-bribery and FCPA compliance program today. It's a message reinforced by recent headline risks and record Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and U.K. Bribery Act fines. While the U.S. maintains an aggressive pace of enforcement, the U.K. Bribery Act is spurring significant new enforcement measures while Switzerland, Germany and other nations are reflecting a global trend of increased investigation and enforcement. More than ever, companies must screen and monitor potential vendors, agents, partners, and other third parties to detect red flags for bribery, fraud and other crimes.
- The fraud protection required to highlight potential vulnerability to fraud, embezzlement, malfeasance, and bribery.
- Relevant criminal records and extensive negative media coverage of fraudulent and criminal activity supporting due diligence.
- Extensive, global coverage of persons and organizations indicative of FCPA-relevant risk.
- Widespread, global coverage of known or suspected crime figures and organizations drawn from a broad mix of media, regulatory, and enforcement sources.
- Comprehensive coverage of key categories of crime, misconduct, fraud, and other categories of activity of direct concern to organizations with requirements to vet and continuously monitor prospective business associates.
