Risk & Brand Protection (R&BP)

Our reputation starts with you-this belief is core to R&BP Office, which brings together six essential core areas that shape our culture-we collectively work with our businesses to inspire new standards of integrity, trust, and performance to make an impact that matters and to better serve our clients, our communities and our people.

Independence & Conflicts Network (ICN) - One of R&BP's Six Pillars

Independence is integrity, professional skepticism, intellectual honesty, and objectivity - freedom from conflicts of interest. The people of Deloitte must remain unbiased and free from conflicts of interest with our clients, in fact and appearance. Deloitte's independence requirements are defined by specific sets of policies and external rules and regulations to help us remain independent when providing service and creating business relationships.
