In uncertain times, businesses are at risk of fraud, misconduct, corruption, cybercrime and other financial crime events. When faced with such events, it is crucial to respond quickly and credibly to manage stakeholder expectations (including regulators), secure relevant evidence, establish what happened, recover lost assets, act against the perpetrators and mitigate subsequent reputational damage or commercial loss. In addition clients are asking for greater value from investigations to gain organisational improvement and understand how the result or observations from an investigation could lead to an improved controls environment.
