Governance, Risk, and Controls Services

Turn controls into competitive advantage

Rapid changes and unprecedented activity—from new participants in the public arena, activations of new companies, formation of new lines of business, or M&A—are affecting shareholder value and may also be raising concerns of increased regulation and compliance requirements.


Controls advisory and implementation

Internal controls compliance today is more than just achieving the baseline. It needs to add value. Our integrated controls advisory services are designed to help organizations enhance their approach to compliance. We use emerging technologies (robotics, cognitive computing, and data analytics) to help you shift the focus of your controls function from hindsight to foresight.

Our suite of tech-enabled services can help executives gain a better understanding of their current state of controls, spot trends, identify opportunities, and change behavior. Fostering insights and engagement, these digital tools can help your controls team keep pace with growth, navigate regulatory and cultural shifts, and protect business value in a quick and cost-efficient manner.

These services are also flexible and scalable. By working across your entire controls spectrum, they can help you address a range of scenarios, from specific pain points to wholesale change.


SOX and ICFR services

Compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) is a governance, risk, and controls challenge for many companies. Meeting your compliance obligations and regulatory requirements require the right people, processes, and technology. A balanced and streamlined approach to your compliance efforts can help keep management abreast of internal controls for financial reporting (ICFR) hot topics, trends, and regulatory areas of focus. This can also serve to support proactive alignment with your independent auditors in lockstep, increasing ICFR efficiency and effectiveness.

We have SOX-related services for any SOX program stage, from IPO readiness to modernization of your existing end-to-end program on individual processes. Let us help you modernize your SOX program to gain efficiencies, enhance quality, and reduce the cost of compliance.


Governance, risk, and controls for private companies

Private companies may not be as regulated as their public counterparts, but risk management and internal controls still have value. That value isn’t only for companies getting ready for a public listing. It’s also for companies that want transparent financial and operational information available for decision-making and reporting. Our risk-based approach to controls can help private companies shore up internal controls to increase certainty about information from across the organization.
