The session will examine some of the key challenges facing risk professionals in driving an organisation’s integrity agenda in today’s rapidly evolving legal and regulatory market. These challenges are startingly apparent in the Australia and New Zealand findings from the EY Global Integrity Report 2022, which this year includes insights from more than 4,700 respondents.
Investment in integrity and compliance programmes has rightly improved in recent years, as organisations have recognised the risks associated with data protection, cyber-attacks and whistleblower regulations. However, a clear gap is apparent between management rhetoric and reality when it comes to the effectiveness of these programs (the “say-do” gap), which has undeniably been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. More work is required in educating employees and leaders about the critical importance of integrity, beyond compliance with rules and regulations.
It will highlight key areas of concern, supported by recent data and on-the-ground experiences of the presenters. It will also outline best practices and recommendations to help organisations strengthen compliance programs and manage integrity risks.
