The topic of whistleblowing has become one of immediate attention nowadays, with the introduction of the new Whistleblowing European Directive in 2019, looking to increase the protection of the persons reporting misconduct and to impose organisations with fifty employees or more to set up internal channel for reporting breaches. Organisations are now enforced to have implemented secure reporting channels by 2021, as per the previsions of the European Directive.
