Forensic Investigations

If your organisation has been exposed to employee misconduct, vendor fraud or bid collusion, PwC will combine investigative techniques and advanced technology with deep industry and regulatory knowledge to find out what went wrong, calculate how much damage was caused, and build a case against those responsible. We can also act as expert witnesses if a matter ends up in a disciplinary hearing or court.

Anti-money laundering (AML)

Combatting financial crime
PwC assists with assessing how vulnerable an organisation is to being used for money laundering and evaluating the effectiveness of their compliance programmes Sanctions can be heavy for getting this wrong. We will reduce your risk and satisfy your regulatory requirements by developing and implementing tailor-made, robust and practical AML compliance controls, trainings and programme development.

Fraud Risk Management

Preventing and overcoming crisis and anxiety
We’ll assess your organisation’s readiness to manage fraud, its exposure and then develop and help you implement a tailored anti-fraud programme to close the gaps. This will include practical and comprehensive policies supported by fraud response protocols, an ongoing risk monitoring framework, and communications and awareness training programmes.

Global Intelligence (Integrity Due Diligence)

Identify the operational threats to your business through integrity due diligence
As you operate within a third party ecosystem that crosses multiple jurisdictions, your business could be threatened by a wide variety of regulatory and compliance threats. These may include sanctions violations, corruption, human trafficking, money laundering and violations of other international regulations.
You need to have a clear look into the threat profiles of vendors, suppliers, customers and distributors – to assess relationship criticality, jurisdiction, industry and financial stability.

Anti-bribery & Corruption

Safeguarding your reputation and helping your organisation survive turbulent times
Corruption and bribery can expose companies to significant regulatory and reputational risk. We provide confidential advice to companies on their anti-bribery and corruption programmes – be that locally, regionally or globally. We can also investigate matters emerging in these areas.

Cyber-attack & Breach Response

Cybercrime is one of the most disruptive forms of economic crime and increasingly one of the most prevalent. We will assess your vulnerability to cyber-attack, develop a cyber security programme and a cyber incidence response plan to prepare and respond to cybercrime, and set up and conduct cyber awareness training for all staff who are connected to the outside world.

Dispute Analysis & Expert Testimony

We provide business and financial advice to lawyers and their clients for disputes; help companies determine the effect of accounting adjustments for a merger or acquisition post-closing disagreement; or quantify breach of contract damage, third-party liability, and intellectual property infringement. We can then back this up with expert testimony at depositions, trials, and arbitrations.
