September 16, 2021

As parts of the world economy open up and overall business spend is on track to go back to pre-COVID-19 levels, organizations are more vulnerable to fraud, corruption, and regulatory violations. As well, there has been no shortage of bribery and corruption cases through the past year, pointing to a need to have proper controls in place.
