As global communities grow more aware of the types of corruption that plague their private and public sectors, actions are being taken by the general public to inform and monitor those corruption cases. In places like Russia, where non-governmental organizations (NGO) are taking actions against corruption, the new wave of anti-corruption support is starting to take off. Social innovation and social networking are playing important roles in the fight against corruption. In an article written by the online news outlet, the RT, they showcase an NGO launching its social network dedicated to combating corruption and bribery.  As global communities’ grow and the expansion of global business and trade become more active, having programs that help with the fight against corruption is a step in the right direction.

Social innovation is beginning to lead the way in how both private and public sector organizations can be monitored.

“The new service will be available at the Cyrillic address www.взяткенет.рф (which means “no to bribes” in Russian). The project was launched by the National Institute for Research of Global Security, which claims that the social network will give its users more chances to combat corruption than they would have otherwise.”

Global business opportunity and technology tend to work alongside each other. As one grows so does the other, but unfortunately acts of corruption tend to lurk right behind these positive growths. Whether it is government agencies, NGO’s, or private sector companies, steps are being taken to take technology in a direction that creates solutions for the on going threat of corruption.

Understanding the complexity of worldwide anti-corruption and bribery laws is the bases for creating a solution. Then, once this knowledge is understood and policies are in place, taking it a step further into a technological solution that helps with tracking anyone you conduct business with is the next step; we call this “getting off the spreadsheet.” Learn more on how “getting off the spreadsheet” can manage and prevent corruption from happening in your organization.
