e-Book: Rising Global Corruption Risks and Cross-Border Investigations

Posted January 12, 2014

In this e-Book on corruption risks and cross-border investigations we look at what's driving corruption and bribery risks, from the proliferation of new laws in countries like China, Brazil, and Canada to the increased enforcement of anti-bribery laws around the world. We look at some of the hot spots for corruption, including Russia and Mexico, and provide insights on spotting bribes. As companies increasingly need to conduct investigations overseas, we also explore some of the challenges of cross-border investigations, including the data privacy and security issues that arise from moving information across borders. Finally, we examine some of the cultural norms in China that can complicate compliance and make internal investigations there more complex.

The eBook concludes with a white paper by KPMG: KPMG-CW-Cross-Border-Investigations

Cross-border investigations: Are you prepared for the challenge?

Conducting cross-border investigations is no simple endeavor. Add the complexities of legal and cultural differences, and you have arguably one of the biggest challenges facing global corporations today. There are obstacles at every step of a cross-border investigation, and understanding where the pitfalls are along the way and how to navigate them can help you avoid critical missteps. The goal of this report is to give you meaningful guidance by discussing ways to effectively meet these challenges through the experiences of KPMG investigations professionals working around the world. We asked sixty worldwide executives who are responsible for managing their organizations' cross-border investigations to tell us about the challenges and obstacles they regularly face.
