There is an often ignored side to the efficiency of automated processing and electronic storage of data: 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. With increased IT corporate governance concerns, security threats, data quality issues and privacy legislation, today, more than ever, organizations need to ensure the integrity, confidentiality and availability of information and the underlying systems. Implementing checks and balances for projects, work processes, computer applications and the underlying systems and third parties is one way to mitigate these business risks.
Our team of Control Assurance professionals is dedicated to working with clients to mitigate risks affecting internal systems, business processes, projects, applications, data and third parties.
