Abstract:

Since the days of the Enron scandal and the advent of Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), good corporate governance has become recognized as key to preventing fraud within an organization.  And when things do run afoul, prosecutors are quick to assess what has been the “Tone at the Top.”   When deciding whether to prosecute whole corporations or just the individuals who are most responsible for the illegal acts, prosecutors assess the organization’s general ethical climate, as established by its board of directors, audit committee, and senior management.  Proper tone at the top helps prevent fraud and other unethical practices.  It is a prerequisite for solid corporate/business governance.  Business owners and boards of directors have a dual role when it comes to ethics:  creating codes of conduct, and living by them.  We will briefly explore the evolution of this concept and examine some examples as personally experienced by the presenter, including some implications on information technology.
