Reduce Your Risks, Join the CREAte.org Pilot

Categories: Anti-corruption, Intellectual Property Protection

News stories about cybertheft, counterfeiting, piracy and corruption are a constant reminder of the risks associated with working in a global marketplace.

To help companies mitigate the risks of IP theft and corruption, CREATe.org has launched two services:

  • CREATe Leading Practices for IP Protection
  • CREATe Leading Practices for Anti-Corruption

Each is a three-step program which includes:

  • Self-assessment: an online Q&A which benchmarks the practices in place;
  • Independent evaluation: a discussion with a CREATe expert to assess practices; and
  • An improvement plan:  resources, tools and training to help improve compliance

CREATe Leading Practices is currently being used by companies looking to assess their own systems and also by multinationals who have asked 10 – 20 of their supply chain or business partners to take the assessment.

Both programs are available in English, Chinese and Brazilian Portuguese. Companies from China, India, Brazil, Japan, Europe and the US are currently in the pilot. The companies represent aviation, information technology, electronics, consumer goods and other industries.

CREATe is currently offering both the IP and Anti-Corruption programs free of charge to companies participating in the pilot. It’s easy to get started, just email info@CREATe.org to arrange a demo.
