Business corruption in the global marketplace is becoming an increasing menace to U.S. organizations. In a newly released book, The Anti-Corruption Handbook: How to Protect Your Business in the Global Marketplace, author William P. Olsen, principal in the Advisory Services practice and National Practice leader of Investigations at Grant Thornton LLP, provides hands-on experiences on the front line of the battle against corruption.

A direct guide to anti-corruption, the book explores the risk of doing business in the global marketplace and the precautions companies and organizations can take to deter corruption.  Written for CFOs, internal auditors, compliance offices, and forensic accountants, the book shows readers how to take proactive steps to detect and deter this activity through strong governance and oversight programs.

"Avoiding being caught up in corruption or fraud is not easy. Bill's book provides us all with common sense and needed guidance."
