ACFE June Event: Insights from Deloitte’s 2017 bribery and corruption survey

Unfortunately, the presentation by Chris Cass on ‘Learnings from the Tabcorp prosecution – blending financial crime challenges’ had to be deferred to a later date due to unforeseen circumstances beyond Chris’ control.

Instead, Deloitte’s Director, Forensic Risk Advisory, Oliver May, will speak about ‘Insights from Deloitte’s 2017 bribery and corruption survey’.

Please accept our apologies for the last minute change of topic.

Kind regards,

ACFE Sydney


Last week, Deloitte published One Step Ahead, its 2017 bribery and corruption report which provides insights from its regular survey of Australian and New Zealand risk leaders.

With New Zealand’s public sector perceived to be the least corrupt in the world and Australia not far behind, are Australasian organisations doing enough to stay ahead of these dynamic risks? Despite growing public scrutiny, political concern and recognition of the reputational threat, Deloitte’s survey suggests potentially not.

In this session, Deloitte will share insights from the survey and facilitate a discussion about the implications. How are the risks developing, and what do Australian and New Zealand businesses need to do to stay one step ahead?
