Anti-Corruption Illustrated (eBook)

Anti-corruption efforts at the modern global company can be overwhelming and, for all the talk about effective anti-corruption regimes, sometimes it helps to step back and visualize the bigger picture—literally. Hence we welcome you to our first-ever “Anti-Corruption Illustrated” publication.

This e-book is a compendium of anti-corruption articles published jointly by OCEG and Compliance Week. Here you will find all those articles, plus the roundtable discussions OCEG has run about anti-corruption with chief compliance officers and other compliance thinkers, plus OCEG’s famed illustrations: doublepage spreads you can print out, stare at, and contemplate as you structure your own anti-compliance program.

The articles address all the fundamentals of compliance programs:

  • Due diligence on third parties and acquisition targets;
  • Sifting through reams of corporate data effectively to find those few clues that expose possible misconduct;
  • The role of the modern chief compliance officer as one part cheerleader for good conduct, one part counselor to business unit leaders, and one part fraud investigator.

Each article also has an accompanying illustration. We know the images are somewhat abstract, and have a certain flowchart appeal to them. That’s intentional. Successful anticorruption consists of several basic principles that can apply to all, and myriad small details that apply to your business alone. The illustrations capture those basic principles; the articles provide context; the details we leave to you, since only you know what compliance program will work best at your business.

We hope you find our anti-corruption e-book useful as you continue to develop and implement anti-corruption regimes around the world. The cliché is that a picture speaks 1,000 words. Considering the huge and diverse audiences a chief compliance officer must reach these days, and the complex subject matter, visualization can only help.
