Risk Assurance

Today’s business environment is more complex and more connected than ever before. Companies face new and unknown risks, but also new and untapped opportunities.

In today's business world, companies must be able to trust the accuracy, integrity and timeliness of the corporate information they use for financial reporting and management decision-making.

This means that they must pay particularly close attention to the design, documentation and operation of their internal IT systems and controls. They need assurance that their systems, processes and risk management procedures are operating effectively within a well-controlled environment.

Our risk assurance services help clients address these issues. Our professionals provide assurance services relating to controls associated with the financial reporting process, including financial business process and IT management controls.

Serving both audit and nonaudit clients, we provide:

  • Assurance that adequate controls are in place to mitigate key risks facing the business
  • Comfort that key controls have been implemented prior to major systems going live
  • Assurance that key processes are providing reliable reports to enable management to make appropriate decisions
  • Assurance that there is a robust risk management framework to identify risk

Specific services include:

  • Assurance on financial and operational applications/business process controls and segregation of duties in enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems
  • Computer and database security controls assessments
  • IT general controls assessments
  • Infrastructure security assessments
  • Due diligence on systems and controls
  • Project implementation assurance (pre- and post-implementation assessments)
