Revised standard on fraud-and-corruption control

Fraud and corruption are significant issues for Australian businesses, governments and NFPs and their auditors. They often hit financial reports and reputations. Corporate-governance principles and legislative mandates demand that boards address these risks.  ASIC has found companies’ whistleblowing policies wanting and has threatened enforcement action.

Let’s look at how to manage them with revised Standards Australia AS 8001:2021 Fraud and corruption control.  AS 8001:2021 has been updated to provide minimum requirements for organisations wishing to develop, implement, and maintain effective fraud-and-corruption control system.

We shall also discuss the requirement of consistency with ISO/IEC 27001 Information technology – Security techniques – Information Security Management Systems – Requirements.

The update also includes guidance on the roles of governing bodies and top management, and whistleblower protection.
