Ladies and Gentlemen,

Traditionally, for more than a dozen years, in the last week of September, Cracow opens up to participants of the International Congress on Internal Control, Internal Audit, Fraud and Anti-Corruption Issues. Experts from all over the world will come to discuss the most important changes, achievements and problems of specific areas. They will talk about their own experiences, plans and challenges.

Both detection and counteracting of corruption, abuses and economic or tax fraud are not easy. Methods and "defensive mechanisms", which were effective yesterday, may not work now. The reason is that criminals are remarkably more inventive and determined. They are not deterred by severe penalties. Moreover, they are favored by the gaps and imperfections of national, communal and international law and also progressive globalization.

They can effectively cover up traces or an identity and hide or "export" fortunes to tax havens. That is why it is so important to regularly exchange experiences and knowledge about the problems, challenges and perspectives which board and supervisory board members, auditors, internal controllers, specialists dealing with corporate risk management, prevention and detection of fraud and corruption, Governance and compliance at the international level have to face every day.

We cordially invite you to participate in the 18th International Congress on Internal Control, Internal Audit, Fraud and Anti-Corruption Issues which will take place on 26-27 September, 2019, in Cracow.
