Deloitte Private Matters

July 2018

In the latest edition of Deloitte Private Matters, you will find insightful Deloitte commentary on a wide variety of topics.
This month, we feature articles from the Deloitte Forensic team on how to spot possible fraud in your organisation and we look at how the next generation of family business leaders are approaching their business relationships in new ways to drive value. In addition, we identify key areas that need support within the Irish tech sector, we discuss implementing effective cyber threat management and we look at the key insights from our latest CFO report.

At Deloitte Private, we understand that establishing, maintaining and growing a business in today’s challenging environment presents a wide range of complex issues. Deloitte Private focuses on the priorities of private and private-equity backed companies, family businesses and individuals in Ireland.

1. How to spot possible fraud in your organisation

Being alert to red flags and responding appropriately can assist you to detect fraud earlier and in some cases prevent fraud occurring altogether. David Carson and Barry Robinson, Partners in Deloitte Forensic outline the common red flags present in fraud cases.

2. Family Business: Exploring Business Ecosystems

For many family-owned companies, business relationships used to be limited to a handful of players within the same industry — and often within the same geographical region. While this model may have proved successful in the past, today’s dynamic business environment calls it into question. Read our latest report with insights from Daniel Murray and Niall Glynn into how Irish family business leaders are approaching new ways of generating growth through collaboration and interdependence.

3. Technology: Embracing the art of the possible

As this year's Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards programme launches, Dave Shanahan outlines how the companies recognised through this programme should inspire us all to embrace the art of the possible and why certain areas within the tech sector require critical support.

4. Real security insights that can mature your Cyber posture

In this article, Owen Pendlebury from the Deloitte Risk Advisory team provides insights on implementing effective cyber threat management in your organisation.

5. Latest CFO Report: Undeterred by uncertainty

Key results show that 84% of Irish CFOs consider a hard Brexit to be a likely outcome while the shortage of skilled professionals has become the third most significant risk in the minds of Irish CFOs. Our latest report presents the findings from CFOs across Ireland and Europe on market and business sentiment.
