Continuing with our webinar series on all-things GRC, our next session will take a look at whistleblowing, its definition, its main challenges, and how your organisation can better prepare to handle such cases and make it safer for your team members to share their concerns with their managers.

So make sure you join us on Wednesday, November 23 at 2:00 pm UK time for a comprehensive and hopefully educational overview of this practice and its minutiae.

Questions to Be Discussed

Some of the questions to be tackled by our panel include:

  1. What exactly is whistleblowing?
  2. What are some of the challenges individuals face when they want to blow the whistle?
  3. What are some of the factors that would encourage an individual to come forward and blow the whistle? Do reward systems for whistleblowing actually work?
  4. What are governments in the EU doing to better protect whistle-blowers? Are there any specific regulations or laws that stand out?
  5. What should organisations do to protect whistle-blowers?
  6. What’s the role of technology in whistleblowing?
  7. Are there any interesting whistleblowing case studies that you’d like to share with us?
  8. How do you see whistleblowing evolving into the future? Will it become easier to do or will it retreat?
  9. And plenty more!

Hope to have you with us!
