WEBINAR RECORDING | BRIBERY: Pitfalls Most Organisations Often Commit – the importance of implementing Anti-Bribery Management System (ABMS)

Not implementing Anti-Bribery Management System (ABMS) is a mistake many organisations make. Bribery has an indisputable impact on any business culture. One of the most important aspects of any organization is its culture. How do employees relate to one another? Is it an encouraging and enriching place to work? Do employees trust their colleagues, and look forward to working with them?

Sadly, when an organisation chooses to not implement Anti-Bribery Management System (ABMS), it ends up lacking proper controls against fraud, bribery and corruption and falls short on compliance standards is likely to have a negative office culture, as well. Employees who see their associates bending or even breaking rules will have a weakened view of their organization as a whole and won’t feel as though they can depend on their fellow colleagues to do the correct thing.

Implementing Anti-Bribery Management System (ABMS) is a key tool and that’s why ISO 37001:2016 training and certification is so important. ABAC will be hosting a webinar on the 30th of September on the Pitfalls Most Organisations Often Commit – the importance of implementing Anti-Bribery Management System (ABMS). Why be a part of the problem when you can be a part of the solution? Our paid webinar will cover information regarding bribery, including consequences of bribery and defences to bribery as well as an overview of the regulatory framework, specifically the New Corporate Liability provision under Section 17A of the Malaysian Anticorruption Commission Act 2009 and a comparative study of Section 7 of the UK Bribery Act 2010. This webinar is aimed at businesses who wish to widen their knowledge and expertise regarding the ISO 37001 Anti-bribery Management System standard.



  • Discuss what the underlying Bribery and Corruption risks are for corporations.
  • Find out how to protect financial institutions and corporations from bribery and corruption risk
  • Take a look at the damages that could affect the businesses and beyond in the wake of bribery and corruption.
  • Examine Effective Controls used to mitigate risk for bribery and corruption.
  • Review what can be done in the case of bribery being detected.
  • Breakdown all the components of risk management at corporations and financial institutions.
  • Engage in a live Q&A session.

This paid webinar will be running from the following times on Thursday the 30th of September;

  • 08:00 to 10:00 GMT

  • 12:00 to 14:00 GST

Register your place for this webinar here and find out how to implement the ISO standards in your organisation to ensure that you don’t get caught out on any laws you weren’t made aware of.


Why ISO?

The ISO approved Anti-Bribery Management System training and certification standard brings together best practices, proven strategies, and elements of the Malaysian Anti-corruption Commission (MACC) Act, U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the UK Bribery Act 2010 and other major legislations that aid in curtailing bribery and corruption across the spectrum.

When an organization undertakes ISO 37001:2016 training employees understand that ethical behaviour is the norm, and anything outside of those bounds will be punished – perhaps with the loss of their job, or even prosecution. We at CRI believe that knowledge is power and that educating yourself is the first step into a more ethical work environment. That being said, our speakers at the webinar will be doing a deep dive into internationally recognised solutions laid forth by ISO 37001: Anti-Bribery Management System that gives businesses effective controls to mitigate risk in a manner that doesn’t distort the businesses principles. To ask is to learn, so make sure you seize the opportunity to talk to our speakers as well as other accredited experts in regards to any queries you may have – no matter how big or small, it is better to know whether your current standards are sufficient enough in this ever-changing climate and legislation crackdown.

ISO 37001:2016 isn’t just for the security team or executives. It involves the entire organization. Staff learn how to recognize red flags of noncompliance for bribery and fraud, and how to report them. They also gain an understanding that the organization won’t tolerate unethical behaviour.
