Transnational Crime Director
The insider threat, leaks of internal information and fraud and corruption within the workplace are recognised as key risks that organisations have to deal with. Cyber crime reporting and assessment including having a fraud and corruption control plan are an essential first step in mitigating this global threat.
Enhancing capabilities and expertise, policies and procedures, systems and controls should be an ongoing cycle from the assessment through to implementation and monitoring.
Continuous assessment of risks and global threats that impact or may impact an organisation in the future is integral to its operational and strategic decision making and is a key component to building a risk mitigation strategy.
Testing an organisations approach to compliance with its key policies, procedures and controls in place should be an essential and regular part of a risk mitigation framework.
Insider threat is now recognised as one of the key risks that organisations face globally. It is with the knowledge that staff or consultants working within risk areas understand where the control weaknesses are and whether an organisation is able to identify or respond to instances of non compliance. Recent publications have confirmed that many organisations approach to risk assessment is at best inconsistent, and isn't conducted on a regular or ongoing basis.
Concern in this areas is not only the continual change in global threats and their impact on an organisation but additionally how the public and private sectors are able to identify and protect themselves against risks being introduced from other organisations that don't assess or monitor their own risks.
Mapping global threats from organised crime and the routes that crime groups traffic people can give an organisation an insight into their supply chain risk and the risk within vendor supply chains from the introduction of risks such as counterfeit products, child labour and modern slavery.
Recognising and analysing the global threat from transnational crime assists all sectors that are affected to plan and design out these risks through supply chain assurance and a strong risk mitigation strategy.
