Jay Rosen’s 5-part Blog Series on Corporate Compliance Insights: The Basics of Corporate Culture

By | AMI News, Jay Rosen, Media | No Comments
Culture exists in the space between what an organization professes and what it does. Jay Rosen explains why it’s important to pay attention to culture: Disconnects can be quite costly. Day 1: The Challenges for and Benefits of Monitors in Health Care

“Over the past few months, senior leaders at both the Department of Justice (DOJ), and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), have given speeches discussing the need for appropriate corporate culture around compliance.

This means corporate culture is the way things really are in an organization and the way things really work.

Transforming corporate cultures by placing CFEs in top echelons — ACFE Board of Regents Interview for Fraud Magazine

By | AMI News, Eric Feldman, Media

AMI’s Eric Feldman sat down with the other members of ACFE’s Board of Regents to discuss the importance of CFE’s in fostering corporate culture. This conversation appears in the September/October issue of FRAUD Magazine.

The members of the ACFE Board of Regents know this from their years of consulting with C-suite execs who want to tackle fraud but also have to wrestle with timid general counsels, fluctuating quarterly reports and concerned stakeholders.

The Board gathered at the beginning of the recent 30th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference to opine on the latest anti-fraud issues during a 90-minute Fraud Magazine interview.

When you have lots of money being spent in an industry, there is always the potential for fraud, waste and abuse. Now, overlay this with the public money involved, and there is the potential for a False Claims Act or government action, whether civil or criminal.

Independent integrity monitoring can proactively assess compliance programs and culture and identify potential areas of compliance risk.
