IT Internal Audit

IT Internal Audit

IT Internal Controls

Minimize Loss & Protect

With the right internal audit consulting and internal audit procedures, our advisors strengthen and support your control environment to help you to manage your organization’s risk.

Design & Implementation

Strong internal controls can provide assurance that your organization is operating in line with company policies, industry standards and regulatory requirements. They also help minimize the risk of data, financial and reputational loss from breaches and fraud. Our consultants can develop and implement robust internal control systems to help protect your organization.

Testing

While internal controls have always been a critical component of a corporate infrastructure, the focus and attention on this area has never been greater. With the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), terms like COSO and CobIT have become commonplace well beyond internal audit. Our consultants follow the standards of the PCAOB, IIA, SEC, and AICPA, which requires us to monitor our approach to consulting on a regular basis, and helps ensure that we are following industry best practices and standards.

IT Policy & Procedure Development

Craft Policies for

Updating policies and procedures is time-consuming and challenging. Creating documentation from scratch can be even more difficult. Our consultants can help you review, revise and create well-designed procedures that keep your organization complaint and help you improve in areas such as accountability, training, efficiency and consistency.

Effectively managing third-party relationships to monitor performance, decrease risks, and reduce cost can be challenging. And with increased regulatory scrutiny and requirements of PCI, SOC 2, HIPAA, GLBA, GBPR and other regulations, it’s more important than ever to assess your organization’s risk.

Whatever the scope of your management and oversight needs, we can help. We've helped clients:

  • Evaluate vendor relationships
  • Assess individual vendors and partners
  • Develop reports to define controls and show testing

SOC 1, 2, 3, Cybersecurity & Supply Chain
