Points for Reviewing a Whistleblowing System, Etc.
~ Review Based on ‘Cases of Efforts Toward Preventing Scandals ~
Most of the recent cases of misconduct/scandals resulted in serious situations because, even though a system such as whistle-blowing system existed, it did not fully function. Some of such cases often cause directors and other executive officers to assume liability for massive compensation, to be forced to resign from their office and/or to be charged with criminal liability.
In this seminar, the lecturer presents real cases of recent scandals, explains how most of such misconduct and scandals came to be discovered, and elaborates on how to reconstruct systems (such as global whistleblowing systems, internal audits and other systems to deal with overseas subsidiaries) in order to promptly discover misconduct based on such real cases and the published “Cases of Efforts Toward Preventing Scandals.”
