As i m working for a company with an international footprint  the articles were a refresher on ethical threats , the articles also led on to some reading on the current  ukraine crisis, sanctions on Russia and Russian banks are a topic for our organisation as is ethical and reputational damage around transactions

This article was chosen because currently I work in an international company which 
has a high risk and threats that the business faces working in countries where bribery and unusual activity can take place.  For this reason, It is important to safeguard the business by reporting any irregularities and or identifying risks and embedding and implementing ethical practice in our business
