Anti-Bribery and Corruption

Course format: self-paced online

    Identify and Address Illegal Practices

    Bribery and corruption are global issues, affecting all areas of society. The United Nations encourages organizations to avoid and address all forms of corruption; the tenth principle of the UN’s Global Compact states that: “Businesses should work against corruption in all its forms, including extortion and bribery”.


    Proactive ABC programs, including anti-bribery and anti-corruption training for employees, ensure that organizations limit their risk of exposure to criminal practices. Implementing robust anti-corruption measures also protects an organization’s financial and reputational interests, and can build confidence and trust among investors and other stakeholders.


    By completing the ACAMS Anti-Bribery and Corruption online training course, you will gain a thorough understanding of bribery and corruption risks, how they apply to your organization, and how you can mitigate them.
