ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management System - Lead Auditor eLearning Course

Master the audit of an anti-bribery management system (ABMS) based on ISO 37001

Persons of malicious intent continually seek to sophisticate and improve their methods of wrongdoing, including bribery. In addition, the increasingly complex nature of modern day enterprises may sometimes put good-willing people into high-pressure situations and force them into taking or receiving a bribe. This has increased the demand for ISO 37001 certification and, in turn, the demand for ISO 37001-certified auditors. 

ISO 37001 provides a structured methodology for organizations to combat such negative phenomena and aims to help individuals become competent in auditing an anti-bribery management system (ABMS) based on ISO 37001 using up-to-date industry best practices.
