Advised a £100m plus turnover organisation that controls entry and exit areas to the United Kingdom in relation to their economic crime risks. Our work involved interviewing senior stakeholders in different departments of the organisation including accounts payable, HR, procurement, IT, insurance and risk and in-house counsel to assess their policies and procedures as to the risk of economic crime. Such risks included fraud, bribery, cybercrime as well as terrorist financing.
After completing interviews and review of documentation and policies on behalf of the company, a report was submitted using a traffic light system of green being compliant, amber being a risk and red being areas for change with immediate necessity and thereafter directed options for evolution of their processes and policies to deal with the economic crime.
The advice provided assisted the client in implementing changes to the areas in their business exposed to greater risk.
