Third-party Assurance

Provide assurance to your customers through a strong third-party assurance program

Increasingly, companies are outsourcing business processing activities to Outsourced Service Providers (OSPs), giving them access to sensitive data and with implications on internal control environments. This growing reliance on OSPs has led to greater demand for third-party assurance programmes and solutions.

In order to address concerns from customers regarding the services and solutions that OSPs provide, it is critical for them to manage any potential risk and obtain assurance and transparency over those services. One of the most effective ways by which OSPs can communicate information about their risk management and controls is through Third-party Assurance.

Against this backdrop, we offer a range of Third-party Assurance services, depending on the type of third-party assurance standards in place and customers’ requirements.
