Your company does things by the book. You are a business owner with impeccable ethics who would never engage in corrupt practices or involve themselves in money laundering. But if you are not establishing and implement sound and comprehensive anti-corruption and anti-money laundering programs and policies, you can quickly - and inadvertently - find your business in grave peril.
Whether you know it or not, your company and its myriad transactions are subject to a complex web of domestic and international laws and regulations designed to prevent and expose corrupt business and financial activities.
