In this article, Jenner & Block Partners Erin R. Schrantz and Matthew D. Cipolla and Associate Reena Sikdar examine how organizations can enhance their ability to detect corruption issues early on.  The authors discuss barriers that obscure visibility into corruption risks, and multiple strategies to remove them, such as:  removing “shadow” reporting avenues, arming a cross section of personnel to spot corruption risk, and ensuring a company’s approach to compliance keeps pace with business growth.  “A compliance function cannot effectively spot corruption problems if it does not have visibility into high-risk business practices or lacks the requisite number of skilled compliance personnel to respond to issues when they arise.”  This article was also featured on’s Compliance Hot Spots column on April 3, 2019.
