Internal Audit

Information systems rely on work processes that, if not well deployed, monitored and controlled, can be the source of considerable risk. In spite of their sophistication, technical information systems are not infallible. Occasionally, they will produce incomplete, inaccurate and invalid data for a multitude of reasons.

The Information and Controls Assurance service area focuses on the identification and mitigation of risks affecting internal systems, business processes, projects, applications, data and third parties. Implementing checks and balances for projects, work processes, computer applications, the underlying infrastructure and third parties is one way to mitigate risks.

Our services include:

  • Controls transformation services
  • External Audit
  • International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO)
  • Third party reporting

Information and Controls Assurance

In today's business environment, many organisations increasingly rely on outsourcing, licensing, alliances, and other business partnerships to meet their objectives. These complex relationships are governed by financial and legal agreements that are often poorly monitored.

A lack of controls around these relationships creates risks, either reporting or operational in nature, and can lead to brand or reputation damage and the loss of significant revenue through uncollected royalties, misreported claims, and inadequate inventory controls. Contract Risk and Compliance is a service focusing on risk management that can help organisations optimise relationships with other entities to improve business processes, maximise revenue, manage costs, address risks, strengthen relationships and boost performance.

Our services include:

  • Enterprise Business Relationship Management (EBRM)
  • Supplier/Vendor Governance
  • Software Asset Management (SAM)
  • Software License Compliance
  • Royalty Compliance
