  • Wrongdoing,
  • Illegality or
  • Risk in the organisation (for example, crimes, civil offences, miscarriages of justice, dangers to health and safety)

Whistleblowing may also include the cover up of any of the above concerns. Whistleblowing applies to raising a concern within the organisation as well as externally, such as to a regulator.
