Partnership Will Offer Full Suite of Services Built Upon Decades of Forensic Accounting, Investigatory and Legal Experience in Anti-Corruption and Anti-Bribery
Scottsdale, AZ (June 17, 2020) – Ethics Suite, the secure and private web-based platform for the internal reporting of organizational misconduct, today announced a strategic partnership with Polaris Corporate Risk Management, to create a joint offering of a full suite of Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) audit and investigative services.
The Polaris-Ethics Suite partnership brings together decades of leading corporate risk management experience, including forensic accounting, internal FCPA investigations and security capabilities. The Ethics Suite hotline will be a supplement to these services, allowing companies and their employees, vendors, customers and managers with the opportunity to report workplace misconduct, fraud or theft privately and directly to an organization.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Polaris to expand our ability to effectively investigate FCPA issues for companies around the world,” said Tricia Fratto, co-founder and general counsel of Ethics Suite. “Our vulnerability assessments and forensic accounting services, coupled with Polaris’ investigative and risk management services, will be the first such offering on the market.”
“FCPA compliance has evolved in recent years, and industries need to adapt to these changes,” said Juliette Gust, founder and president of Ethics Suite. “The Polaris-Ethics Suite partnership will help companies across industries to change and adapt in order to meet these compliance challenges most effectively.”
Stephen Ward, CEO of Polaris Risk Management, said, “the Polaris-Ethics Suite strategic partnership has created a formidable intermediary body to identify and investigate potential issues and to help companies mitigate risk and wrongdoing within their organizations.”
