10th Congress (english)

Since the beginning of the millennium this unique annual event has delivered the latest developments in internal control, internal auditing, risk management, corporate governance, compliance, anti-fraud and anti-corruption techniques; factors of critical importance in the effective management and control of public and private sector organizations alike.
