Welcome to Compliance Week’s “Top Minds in Compliance” podcast—our conversation series with leaders in the compliance field.


This week, columnist Tom Fox chats with Marianne Ibrahim, director of global compliance at Baker Hughes, a GE company.

Ibrahim offers several best practices for the auditing of third parties through her experience at Baker Hughes. She explains how her audit team is assembled and each member’s role; discusses the company’s process of determining which third party to audit; and stresses the importance of conducting the audit in a way that reassures all involved they’re on the same team.
