Veronica Morino ([email protected]) has worked on detection, prevention and investigation of international fraud and corruption for almost 20 years. Convinced, by experience, that raising awareness and focusing on prevention is far more cost-effective than investigation, she specialises in strengthening corporate defences against fraud and corruption. This includes the development of holistic desktop investigative research and analysis tools to explore organisations, business partners, suppliers and customers at a fraction of the resources normally associated with investigation. She is co-author of “The Anatomy of Fraud and Corruption”, published by Routledge (formerly Gower) in 2011. The author would like to thank Asia Chernova for her assistance in the preparation of this article.
