An update from PwC’s Forensic Services team - Fall 2012
Welcome to the Forensic eye opener. This newsletter is designed to introduce our Forensic Services leadership team and provide insight into current issues in the marketplace that are important to you.
In this issue we include articles which cover:
- Corruption of foreign public officials - A Canadian perspective: As anti-bribery and corruption enforcement intensifies in Canada and worldwide, the onus of self-regulation and self-monitoring has been placed firmly on management, Boards of Directors and Audit Committees.
- Photo cheque cashing: Through photo cheque cashing, cheques can be deposited without ever having to wait in line at the teller or make a trip to the ATM. While the only equipment required is a smartphone or a computer with a basic scanner, this technology advancement can also be accompanied by risk.
- Software licensing - Why non-compliance is not an option: As business leaders worldwide are faced with increasing pressure to rein in costs and stabilize revenue, establishing transparency in managing IP technologies can still prove to be win-win for both software vendors and licensees.
- Anti-money laundering: Over the past decade, governments around the world have continuously strengthened anti-money laundering legislation and increased the obligations for businesses to know and document the identities and intentions of their customers.
