What EY can do for you

Integrity and Compliance services

Integrity is at the core of contemporary business and this means not only doing what is legal, but also doing what is right.

We work with companies to review and improve their compliance programs, and make certain that the right governance and compliance structures are in place to prevent violations of regulations and laws.

And we also help establish a culture of integrity throughout the organization, embedding behaviors that strengthen the business, protect the brand and reduce costly business disruptions.

Using forensic data analytics and eDiscovery technologies, we can review large volumes of data to achieve regulatory compliance, and provide the deep insights necessary to develop specific programs that align with a company’s business and risk profile.

EY helps you to:

  • Assess the strengths and weaknesses of your compliance management and culture
  • Review and analyze big data to assess your compliance exposures
  • Implement an integrated Business Integrity and Corporate Compliance framework
  • Reduce the compliance risks of doing business with third parties, suppliers, agents and other business associates
