West LegalEdcenter holds Corporate Whistleblower Forum
Fraud in companies is reportedly more likely to be discovered by insider tips than any other detection method, and with various whistleblower programs including the new SEC Whistleblower Program, whistleblowers from various walks of life and businesses are more comfortable coming forward and reporting wide variations of violations to regulators and law enforcement.
Recently, West LegalEdcenter, a Thomson Reuters business, held the 2012 Corporate Whistleblower Forum, the first international conference dedicated exclusively to helping responsible corporations with topics focused on preventing and deterring misconduct, detecting wrongdoing, and best practices to respond to possible violations.
Stuart Gittleman, a reporter for Compliance Complete from Thomson Reuters Accelus, attended the conference and compiled a post for the Reuters Financial Regulatory Forum blog. You can read the article “Internal Compliance Reporting Programs Must Consider Motivation for Acting, Experts Say” to learn some of the key takeaways from the conference.
