Share Article

To provide companies with a one-stop resource for Sarbanes Oxley compliance, Fortress Global Investigations and The Network have teamed up to offer both investigations and whistleblower hotline services.

The Network, Inc., one of the nation's leading providers of anonymous whistleblower hotlines, and Fortress Global Investigations corporation, a rapidly growing international investigations firm, today announced a strategic alliance to provide corporations with a full service solution for complying with Section 301 of Sarbanes-Oxley.

This section of the corporate reform legislation requires public companies to provide a process for the anonymous reporting of financial irregularities and misconduct, and further requires a process for the retention and "treatment" of complaints received. The Network will provide anonymous hotline services and online case management capabilities, while Fortress Global will provide independent investigations of these allegations.

"As issues are revealed through the hotline, organizations and their attorneys will need professionals with the appropriate expertise and experience to manage investigations in a way that will protect confidentiality while effectively ascertaining the accuracy of the

allegation," said Robert Seiden, President of Fortress Global. "It is critical that the investigation be conducted by an independent entity to ensure credibility and quality and minimize risk to the corporation."

"Working together, we will be able to leverage our expertise to help corporations detect and investigate illegal or unethical behavior in the workplace." said Tony Malone, Chief Executive Officer of The Network.
