Corporations looking across international borders to take advantage of business opportunities face new challenges and the need to detect and prevent wrongdoing such as fraud and corruption has never been greater. When it discovers wrongdoing, an organisation’s first priority is to investigate and gather reliable evidence to make informed decisions. Such investigations can be complex and dangerous, depending on the country and background of the subject under scrutiny. Protecting the investigation team and its process is vital to ensure all evidence is preserved. This presentation looks at roles security play during a high-risk investigation.
