“Manage your business risks with confidence” was the tone for ABAC® Center of Excellence anti-bribery anti-corruption training event held on International Anti-Corruption Day (Monday, 9 December) in Dubai. Hosted at Dubai Quality Group’s offices at Emarat Atrium Building, “Introductory Seminar on ISO 37001:2016 Anti-Bribery Management System” provided critical insight on how to protect businesses from bribery and corruption risks.

Bribery and corruption do more than just damage businesses and detrimentally affect employees – it also affects the world’s economy. For example, it’s estimated that more than US $4 billion was embezzled in one of the world’s biggest corruption schemes, 1MDB, globally. The ABAC® seminar provided effective, real-world solutions laid forth by the ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management System to give businesses effective controls to mitigate risk.

Takeaways for attendees included a greater understanding of the globalisation of bribery and corruption, and an in-depth look at Middle East case studies. The seminar also provided an understanding of the background of bribery, and the knowledge of ISO 37001 impact, requirements, training, and certification. Another focus was on how to remain in compliance with ISO 37001.

Attendees included top-level management personnel and specialists with expertise in various areas, such as compliance and ethics, legal practises and counseling, internal audit, internal controls, finance, risk management, and supply chains. Many in the group were involved in coordinating, developing, implementing and auditing anti-bribery compliance activities internally. Some attendees were involved in assessing their organisation’s internal and external supply chain. The ABAC seminar was also streamed live on Dubai Quality Group’s Instagram page.
