Enterprise Integrity Risk

A corporate forensics solution

Despite increasing legal and regulatory scrutiny, fraud and misconduct (what we call "integrity risk") are on the rise—costing companies $6.3B annually. In response, some organizations categorize integrity risk in isolation. Others take a reactive stance. But those approaches can restrict effective risk mitigation. They can also result in gaps.

Integrated approach, better results

Without an effective integrity risk management program, organizations may be limited to treating the symptoms of fraud and misconduct without addressing the disease. An integrated approach to predicting, detecting, and preventing wrongdoing related to fraud and misconduct can help. Our Enterprise Integrity Risk (EIR) corporate forensics solution delivers the methodologies, processes, and technologies needed to identify, manage, and mitigate fraud and misconduct risk.

Steps to success

In response, some organizations address integrity risk in isolation. Others only respond reactively to integrity risk issues. Unfortunately, those approaches are limited in their effectiveness. They can also result in gaps in integrity risk management programs.

  1. Assess. Gauge the current state of an enterprise’s integrity risk management program and select risk areas of focus.
  2. Understand. Evaluate the organization's controls, systems, and data for each selected focus area.
  3. Compile. Create a cross-functional profile of your organization’s risks and controls.
  4. Deploy. Implement analytics that proactively detect enterprise integrity risks across your organization to generate key insights and observations.
  5. Design. Create enhancements and continuous process improvements.

Deloitte's EIR solution features cutting-edge technology that enables your organization's business functions to trim down the gaps related to risk mitigation and fraud detection.

Drivers that impact enterprise integrity risk

There are many factors that hinder effective risk detection, risk mitigation, and risk prevention, including:

A complex, disconnected or "growth at all costs" business model. This typically contains inherent conduct vulnerabilities.
Manual and complicated processes and procedures. Often these may interfere with business agility.
Weak systems for monitoring enterprise integrity risks. These allow misconduct within the organization to remain hidden.
Disparate subcultures or problematic prevailing culture. Subcultures may thrive without detection.
Human motivation. Why one individual may exploit a situation and a different individual may not is at the heart of it all.
