Deloitte’s whistleblowing services

Introducing Deloitte’s compliance and digital whistleblowing services

Deloitte’s global whistleblowing team have been serving clients for more than fourteen years. We have developed a wide range of compliance and digital whistleblowing offerings so that we can help our clients comply with the EU Whistleblowing Directive and establish an effective and secure reporting framework as a key component of their risk management strategy.


Complying with the regulatory requirements

Recent scandals from Luxleaks to the Pandora Papers have highlighted the importance of forming proper channels for whistleblowers to report in order to expose breaches of Union Law that are harmful to the public interest, but also to uncover potential frauds happening within organizations. The EU Whistleblowing Directive (EU 2019/1937) sheds light on the imperative of introducing confidential and secure reporting channels. It impacts legal entities in the private sector comprising of 50 employees or more, as well as all legal entities in the public sector, including any entity owned or controlled by such entities.


A complete offering of whistleblowing services that meets today’s needs for effective risk management

ACFE’s latest studies on the costs and effects of occupational fraud indicated the effectiveness of maintaining a reporting system. Organizations with an implemented reporting framework detect fraud cases more quickly than those without, while financial losses due to undetected fraud cases are twice as high in the latter. Establishing a secure and effective whistleblowing reporting framework will help organizations:

  • Comply with regulatory standards and best market practices;
  • Mitigate reputational and penalty risks;
  • Establish an integrity and transparency culture;
  • Raise employee awareness to combat fraud and corruption;
  • Boost risk management and governance; and
  • Contribute to the protection of public and EU interests.
