Our professionals possess experience and tools to help identify SoD conflicts, verify their root causes and help you develop strategies and processes to maintain an organized and sustainable program. Additionally, we can help tailor your Governance Risk and Compliance environment to help effectively implement and manage policies and their supporting controls to maintain a strong risk posture.

We can lend you our experience to assess your environment and help you develop security processes, controls and strategies that will enable secure processing of transactions in your environment. We can also assist in planning the security resilience of your environment.
One of the most challenging aspects of using an ERP system is to develop a good reporting strategy. We can help you determine the information required to manage your business and map those requirements to specific reports to help ensure everyone receives consistent and reliable information.
IT Risk Assessment & Response
An assessment of IT risk, whether it is across an organization or in a particular evolving area, helps align your strategic business goals with the IT environment to achieve success. This type of audit ensures that your IT assets are reliable, available, and compliant within your organization's regulations and needs. With our IT risk assessments and/or targeted IT audits and IT risk response services, we provide direction on actions to advance your business. These can be performed in conjunction with financial statement audits, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, internal audit, SOC or other attestation engagements, or in response to incidents.
