This session is organised by the Institute of Internal Auditors, Knowledge Partner of the virtual 2021 OECD Global Anti-Corruption & Integrity Forum. The language of this session is English. COVID-19 has altered the risk landscape, creating greater susceptibility for fraud, corruption and bribery. Economic hardships have increased temptation, new revenue streams have provided greater opportunity, and remote working has led to weakened controls. Organizations must implement, strengthen, and continuously monitor rigorous anti-bribery programs. A well-endowed internal audit function can provide assurance and advice on the design, implementation, and effectiveness of an organization’s anti-bribery program, while the governing body and management can focus on such things as tone at the top, values, policies, and procedures. This session analyzes the accountability, actions, and assurance required to prevent, reduce, identify, and address fraud, bribery and corruption by deliberating on the governance roles of the governing body, management and internal audit as exemplified by The IIA’s Three Lines Model.
