    5th Conference on Ethics and Governance: 

    « Let's blow the Whistle »

    What are the different whistleblowers profiles? What are their motivations? How protected are they? What pressures do they face on a daily basis? What do they become after? These are all questions that will be debated during this conference.

    A whistleblower is a person who exposes secretive information or activity that is deemed illegal, unethical, or not correct within a private or public organization. The information of alleged wrongdoing can be classified in many ways: violation of company policy/rules, law, regulation, or threat to public interest/national security, as well as fraud, and corruption. Those who become whistleblowers can choose to bring information or allegations to surface either internally or externally. Whistleblowers, however, take the risk of facing stiff reprisal and retaliation from those who are accused or alleged of wrongdoing. 

    The event was scheduled for December 2021 and had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 situation. It will take place on May 11th 2022.

  • About this event

    ACFE Switzerland, in cooperation with the IIA Switzerland is pleased to invite you and your guests to the 5th Conference on Ethics & Governance.



    • Christophe Brusset, Whistleblower 

    The Truth, only the Truth on what we eat …And it is not a good news!

    First an agro-food engineer, then a production engineer, Christophe Brusset was a buyer for 20 years for major French and foreign food groups. At 44, he decided to "do his duty" and break the law of silence. Christophe has written several books on the agro industries, revealing key issues on the quality of food we eat. Let’s go behind the scene!
