A Global Perspective

Privacy, Data Protection & Hacks Attacks


Upcoming data protection reform highlights the need for consistent, global legislation to help businesses protect customer and supplier information. Ensuring the security of the supply chain is crucial to safeguarding a company’s intellectual property, reputation and relationships with its customers and suppliers.

Global Supply Chain Ethics

The supply management profession faces a new level of scrutiny and compliance responsibility. While the rise of globally extended supply chains has been a driving force for greater prosperity, it has also created or heightened money laundering, bribery and corruption risks, as well as human rights-related abuses.


Sophisticated Product Counterfeiting & Deterrence


The use of counterfeit goods is increasingly prevalent across all industries and is affecting consumers’ health and safety as well as companies’ reputations, profits and brands. Counterfeit parts have become highly sophisticated and harder to identify — packaging, labeling, or below-market pricing no longer distinguishes them from legitimate products.



New & Diverse Anti-Corruption & Anti-Money Laundering Laws


Varying rules and procedures require closer monitoring and further training to ensure that employees and third parties are compliant with relevant anti-corruption and anti-money laundering laws.


Regulation of Human Rights-Related Risks


Complex supply chains that wind around the world can leave multinational companies vulnerable to ties with businesses linked to human rights abuses, exposing businesses and their leaders to an array of financial, regulatory, legislative, legal and reputational risks.


Ethical Leadership & Strategic Positions at the Management Table


It is incumbent upon today’s leaders to ensure that their organizations and supply chains are educated and well-equipped to competently address challenges and ethical risks on a global scale.
