The debate about the ISO 37001 anti-bribery management system hasn’t gone away. Compliance professionals are still asking tough questions.
Does certification matter? Is it just PR or will it save or help the company if we have a problem? What do prosecutors really think about ISO 37001?
Those questions are uncomfortable but important.
I recently spoke with Kristy Grant-Hart. She’s the CEO of Spark Compliance Consulting and an early and articulate advocate for ISO 37001 certification.
In this interview, she talked about issues that, for the compliance community, have been a source of both confusion and controversy.
