we all matter

giving corporate integrity a voice.

Let us dive into the world of corporate integrity, ethical leadership, and its success factors.

Without being sensitised, we quickly find ourselves surrounded by different patterns of white-collar crime, non-compliance, and cyber-crime.

Compressed knowledge in easily digestible doses to protect your company, your employees, your customers, and yourself – as a business leader or entrepreneur.

The podcast is an extract of the three decades of experience earned by Sonja Stirnimann.

Sonja shares her knowledge because she is convinced that raising awareness is the most effective preventive measure to protect individuals and organisations asset and reputation.

No matter whether we talk about accounting scandals, insider trading, Ponzi schemes, investment fraud, compliance breaches, tax evasion, data theft, extortion, allegations of corruption and bribery, cyber-attacks, or a combination thereof.

They all have in common that the successful implementation of the organisation’s strategy, the asset and reputation protection as well as the ability to act in crises is put at risk.

Let yourself be inspired by insights, interviews, and use cases in corporate integrity with its various factors impacting human behaviour.

No matter what you envision – there is a specific moment when you realise – we all need allies.Have you every thought about who you allies are? How they became your allies? Or maybe who could be my allies to have the impact you want to have?It is very interesting to see how these allies...
There isn’t anybody else understanding your business model better than you and your team. Correct? What kind of insights would you receive if the business model would be analysed from a completely different perspective?

When we talk about cyber security, this includes protection in the social structures of the Internet.   It is about protecting people from the violation of physical or mental integrity. Accordingly, security is a broader view than crime. Cybersecurity encompasses more than cybercrime.  “The absence of security begins where an individual suffers harm or is likely...
Raising awareness – also when it comes to topics like biases – is where everything starts. Without being aware of xyz no transformation can happen.   Therefore, I am convinced that with your personal awareness of being biased the protection already starts.  And if you extend it to your team, your organisation, you have a powerful tool at hand...
We cannot deny the changes and additional requirements. Therefore, I am convinced that it needs some reflection and review of the investigations process too.   The use cases and examples of the last few months demonstrated a wide variety of maturity level of the teams conducting investigations. And by saying that, these different set-ups and processes...
I would like to focus on three aspects how the fraud industry was and is affected by the pandemic  Fraud Risks  Anti-Fraud Programs  Investigations  Fraud Risks  When it comes to the question how the pandemic affected the different risks of becoming a victim there were different areas to be taken up  How was the risk...
The ability to change perspectives – not only when it comes to risk – is crucial for business leaders. As initially mentioned, I will introduce three perspectives to identify risks. This means only three and not all the six we have for example in our toolbox called “Personal Risk Area Identifier” Starting with three will...
Risks are managed differently. Some of them can be managed by a vaccination. Others not. Fraud, economic crime, cyber-attacks, and non-compliance are risks which are not possible to be managed by a vaccination. For the time being…. Board of directors are not only responsible for overseeing management strategy, but also, for their risks management which...
I am convinced that an implemented code of conduct is essential to set the framework on what we do how. No matter what form such a code has. Bringing up the topic “code of conduct” is often misunderstood as an additional regulatory paper created by one not understanding the business. We call it code of...
