Prevention

1.1.1 FRAUD RISK ANALYSIS
  • The fraud risk analysis (FRA, or “fraud risk assessment”) identifies an organization’s real and potential fraud risks, as well as weaknesses in internal controls.
  • FRAs are carried out according to functional priorities (e.g. purchasing, sales, HR, IT), technical sub-areas (e.g. SOX, PEP, AML, “Fit-and-Proper”) or both. A holistic FRA considers both the organization, as well as its suppliers and clients.
  • NEMEXIS offers a variety of specialized FRAs.
1.2.1 COMPLIANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
  • A compliance program consists of internal guidelines and procedures. By aiming to observe existing laws, rules and regulations, it aims to protect an organization’s clients, employees, shareholders and reputation.
  • A compliance team reviews relevant rules set by governments or other regulatory bodies, creates a compliance program, implements it and enforces it throughout the company.
  • NEMEXIS collaborates with a trusted number of experienced lawyers and compliance consultants.
1.2.2 RISK MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
  • A Risk Management Program (RMP) is designed to protect and minimize risks to an organization’s property, products, services, employees and reputation.
  • Effective risk management ensures the continuity of an organization during a crisis.
  • NEMEXIS carries out RMPs by practical, specialized experts in numerous countries.
1.3.1 TRAINING: KICK-OFF WHEN STARTING A HOTLINE
  • Whistleblower hotlines are the most effective way to identify fraud and corruption. Trainings  regarding the meaning, purpose and working methods of a whistleblower hotline are a pre-requisit for a working whistleblower hotline.
  • NEMEXIS offers a variety of individually tailored training formats by investigators, lawyers or auditors, categorized by industry, hierarchy, function or location.
1.3.2 TRAINING: COMPLIANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
  • Compliance trainings include the presentation of different compliance topics in the format of personal lectures, workshops, eLearning, etc.
  • NEMEXIS offers compliance training for numerous industries, organizational hierarchies, specialist departments or worldwide locations in individually tailored formats.
1.3.3 TRAINING: BASIC CRIMINALISTIC INVESTIGATION
  • Basic investigative skills include: case management, first reaction to a suspicion, interview techniques, creating testimony protocols, securing of evidence and writing an investigation report.
  • NEMEXIS offers basic investigative skill trainings.
1.3.4 TRAINING: FORENSIC INTERVIEWS
  • A successful investigative interview is a highly controlled communication environment. It is a skill requiring as much training as experience.
  • NEMEXIS offers trainings of different depths and formats on interviewing witnesses and suspects. With the help of role-play and video training, participants will develop routine and self-awareness.
1.3.5 BENCHMARKING OF A RUNNING HOTLINE SYSTEM
  • Benchmarking an already existing hotline determines how successful it is in comparison with industry KPIs. And which steps must be taken to improve it.
  • As of December 16, 2021, the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive will lead in all EU countries for companies, public institutions and NGOs to a de facto competition for the trust of whistleblowers.
  • NEMEXIS benchmarks existing whistleblower hotlines.
1.4.1 INTERNAL COMMUNICATION
  • Whistleblower hotlines and compliance guidelines are useless without an effective internal communication program.
  • This includes lecture formats, workshops and eLearning, but also the development of a communication concept and the production of advertising materials such as brochures, leaflets, posters, websites, pens, banners, etc.
  • NEMEXIS offers the above-mentioned services and products.

Identification

2.1.1 WHISTLEBLOWER-HOTLINE
  • A “hotline”, also known as “compliance hotline” or “whistleblower hotline”, is the technical component of a compliance reporting system. At its core, it is a browser-based software for anonymous, two-way, encrypted communication with whistleblowers. It can be compared to an encrypted email platform in which an anonymous sender (the whistleblower) exchanges messages with a known recipient (e.g. NEMEXIS whistleblower manager). The hotline allows the whistleblower to send attachments in a wide variety of formats, e.g. video, image, audio or text.
  • The software solutions we recommend delete the metadata of the attachments before the message reaches the recipient. They are ISO 27001 certified and GDPR compliant.
1.3.5 WHISTLEBLOWER-MANAGEMENT (NUMEROUS LANGUAGES)
  • The “whistleblower management” is an interface-building process between whistleblowers and the entity receiving the whistleblower’s information, such as that whistleblower’s employer. Nemexis acts as a Third Party on behalf of its client organizations (the whistleblower’s employers), thereby increasing the anonymity of the whistleblower by reducing the possibility of having an organization (company, government, NGO, etc.) use raw-data hints to identify a whistleblower.
  • The whistleblower manager receives the information from the whistleblower, evaluates the data sent, requests additional evidence and explanations and conducts a brief risk assessment of the received hint. The whistleblower’s message is then anonymized and forwarded to the customer. The final task of the whistleblower manager is to provide feedback to the whistleblower.
1.4.1 INTERNAL COMMUNICATION
  • Starting in December 2021, and due to the “EU Whistleblower Protection Directive”, the formal duties of whistleblower management will expand. One new obligation, for example, will be the adherence to the newly introduced deadlines for communicating with a whistleblower.
  • Whistleblower management must give whistleblowers the opportunity to communicate their tips via an anonymous, two-way channel, by mail, telephone or in person.

Investigation

3.1.1 DUE DILIGENCE
  • Due diligence (“careful examination”) originally referred to a review of the contractual partner, usually carried out when purchasing shares in a company or real estate, or when going public.
  • The term has expanded significantly due to AML, KYC and “Fit-and-proper” requirements. It includes background checks of customers, representatives, distributors or executives before hiring or signing a contract.
  • NEMEXIS and its partners performs due diligence projects in all of the above areas worldwide.
3.2.1 LITIGATION SUPPORT
  • Litigation support is the assistance provided by investigators to a legal team. It takes place before and during main proceedings. In continental Europe, the demand for technical support has grown significantly in recent years, due to digital innovation and legal reforms.
  • NEMEXIS offers investigative services in numerous professional specialties. These are: auditing, investigation (OSINT, HUMINT, local expertise worldwide), IT, interrogation, translations, technical assessment, etc.

  • Our clients may decide to have one or more interviews conducted by a NEMEXIS expert. The strategic coordination lies with a legal advisor or lawyer of the customer.
