Conflicts of Interest: Why and How to Manage Relationship Risk
Many organizations address risks related to bribery, fraud, insider trading, FCPA violations and more, yet few address an underlaying trigger for many of these risks – conflicts of interest.
- Do you have policies and a disclosure management process in place to encourage the open communication of relationships?
- Do employees regularly update their disclosed relationships to ensure accuracy?
- How do you audit your disclosure management and identify weak spots that may result in unmitigated COIs?
Monitoring relationships for potential conflicts of interest allows organizations to reduce the likelihood of more severe risks and better protect the company, customers, partners, investors and employees.
