Thomas Fox, the Compliance Evangelist®, is one of the leading writers, thinkers and commentators on anti-bribery and anti-corruption compliance. In this latest edition of The Compliance Handbook he continues to arm seasoned compliance professionals, and those new to the realm, with the practical, actionable guidance and tools needed to design, create, implement and continually enhance a best practices compliance program.

The "Nuts and Bolts" for Creating a Comprehensive Compliance Plan
The first chapter of this unique work lays out a succinct yet thorough 31-day approach to operationalizing a company’s compliance regimen. The chapter begins with a summary of what 2023 brought to compliance and methodically outlines best practices for everything from establishing policies, procedures and internal controls, to assessing risk, training, handling investigations and more. Each day ends with three key takeaways you can implement at little or no cost.

Understanding Compliance Responsibility Across the Organization
