David Green spoke on a panel at the launch of Transparency International's CPI last night and it was standing room only.

David Green said that the economic crime waterfront is complicated and evolving.  This was echoed by the Chair of TI, Della Ferreira Rubio, when she compared fighting corruption to a game of chess: the black pieces move too.

Corporates cannot afford to become complacent and should regularly review their risks and controls.
