Deloitte SafeSpace: a whistleblowing tool
Detect internal misconduct and frauds in time
Have you ever thought about ways to prevent information leaks regarding confidential company matters? Have you been looking for solutions that allow employees to report unfair and unlawful practices through an internal whistleblowing system that helps detect internal misconduct and frauds?
Are you considering introducing an ethics line? And did you know that in accordance with the new EU directive on the protection of whistleblowers and related regulations, you may be required to report unfair or unlawful practices?
You may have recently heard about several corporate scandals that were reported in the media after the employees of these entities had publicly exposed sensitive information: unfortunately, they are often the ones who bring internal information to the public. This is due to the fact that employees are among the first to learn about violations of rules; they also have access to evidence material but rather prefer not to report these facts to the company: either because they are afraid of retaliation or because there is no internal whistleblowing system available. This is naturally wrong. Thanks to the timely detection of frauds or internal misconduct, you can prevent criminal, financial and reputational risks.

Did you know that both the new EU directive on the protection of whistleblowers and the bill allow obliged entities to outsource the operation of an ethics line? This allows companies to outsource all technical, analytical and legal aspects related to the implementation and efficient operation of the line to external providers and to pursue their day-to-day agenda without interruption.
Are you considering introducing an ethics line but do not know how to do it? Do you already have a whistleblowing solution but you are not sure if it meets the requirements of the EU directive? Our multidisciplinary team of data analysts, professional investigators and lawyers will help you to not only properly implement a functional whistleblowing solution tailored to your company, but also to train your employees and management to ensure its efficient functioning.
