Firstly, because, for different types of companies and public entities, it is a regulatory obligation to use a secure tool that guarantees the encryption of information and the confidentiality of the whistleblower.
To comply with international legislation on Whistleblowing and avoid fines and amends, it is necessary to have a secure reporting management software that respects the rights and confidentiality of the whistleblower, ensuring full regulatory compliance to the organization that adopts it.
Whistleblowing software is also essential to obtain ISO 37001, ISO 37002, and ISO 37301 certifications, dedicated respectively to Anti-Bribery, Whistleblowing, and Compliance.
Using software also ensures a streamlined reporting management flow that favors the well-timed reports and the prevention of more serious crimes, allowing the organization to solve issues internally with important benefits on reputation and the resources employed.
From this point of view, therefore, managing offenses through a whistleblowing software system such as Legality Whistleblowing is not only a regulatory necessity (a so-called Legal Necessity), but also a moral and financial necessity for the organization, both in the public and private sector.
