We perform a wide range of control reviews to address management objectives. These reviews can cover business processes, through applications, to technology infrastructure.
Invariably, our reviews are in the context of business and/or audit risk. Not only do we seek to highlight significant exposures, but we also go the extra mile to recommend potential solutions for risk mitigation.
Reviews of internal controls are an important element of our financial audit services. Our audit approach recognises up front the importance of information systems and control structures in complex organisations. An assessment of key internal controls is tightly integrated into audit plans wherever efficient and appropriate.
Those who manage service organisations frequently desire independent reviews of their controls for consideration by users of their services. Typically, these reviews result in service auditor reports conforming to Statements on Audit Standards (SAS) 70. With the growing number of Internet-based services, trusted third-party reporting is becoming increasingly useful, both for marketing support and end-user assurance.
