Prepare for Cross-Border Investigations


Among 103 senior executives responsible for cross-border investigations, 56% cited proper planning and 40% cited the effective use of internal resources as the primary drivers of successful investigations.

Richard H. Girgenti, the Forensic National Practice leader for KPMG LLP, suggests the following tips to improve international fraud investigations:

Assess investigation protocols and ensure that your board and audit committee are informed of all critical issues.

Have a single, global point of accountability for reporting fraud and misconduct.

Develop a written incident response document that includes a comprehensive set of protocols.

Evaluate legal requirements and the ability of your IT department to promptly retrieve data from systems in global locations.
