Corruption, Corruption, Bribery, Bribery: The Non Violent Killer of a Society

CAA Default

COVID 19 has brought about hardship for millions of people across the world. In an article I wrote for the PECB for their PECB Insights Magazine, I have addressed Business Continuity, Risk Bearing Capacity (RBC) and Cloud Security. Today I am going to address Bribery and Corruption.

These two issues are dear to my heart, my business and our intrinsic values.

As many of you know, I was a Senior Officer in the Policing service, with the rank of Brigadier. Well, this came with huge responsibilities and one of these responsibilities was to be the Presiding Officer in most of the Corruption and Bribery cases reported against Police Officials. Thus, I had the authority to determine, based on the evidence, if the Police employee service shall be terminated. I had the same responsibility as an Executive of a Global Project, between 2007 and 2013. This is decision time!! And there was no running away from this. This is part of the Leadership responsibility bestowed on each and every person, official and office-bearer.

President Ramaphosa, the President of South Africa, has issued a letter to the ruling party where he has announced the Zero Tolerance approach needed to curb corruption, specifically Corruption and Bribery linked to providing critical assets and protective equipment, where front line workers, etc are dying as a result of the shortage of these essentials.

Well, I want to challenge business and industry. Have you heard of the ISO 37001? If not, this is an international standard for companies to adopt in the global fight against Bribery and Corruption.

ISO 37001 standard provides requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, reviewing and improving an anti-bribery management system. This standard is designed for all types of organizations from any sector and for any type of bribery they may face. Apart from this, it can also be implemented as a standalone standard or be integrated with other management systems. This standard is designed to for all types of organizations, any type of sector and any type of bribery risk it faces, and apart from that it can be implemented as a standalone or can also be integrated into an overall management system.

Well, as you by this time know, Crest Advisory Africa is in the forefront of leading the industry in not only International Training, but implementation of ISO Management Systems and Auditing of these systems as a Third Part Audit (TPA) provider.
