Technology risk & governance


In recent years, technology has become a major part of virtually every organization’s operations and one of the key enablers for achieving business objectives. Yet the very pervasiveness of technology makes it difficult to manage. As the move towards mobile, wireless and web-enabled devices accelerates, the risks are only set to mount.

To address these challenges, your organization needs the ability to gain an overarching view of its technology risks. Too often, however, organizations have only fragmented views of their technology infrastructure, hampering effective risk management. Sound IT governance can help close this gap by providing you with a full understanding of your technology assets, risks and benefits.

Deloitte’s multi-functional professionals provide a strong global presence and experience across virtually every industry. We can help you strengthen your IT governance practices and enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of your technology projects. Our services include:

  • Independent verification and validation. Keep your IT projects on time and on budget, reduce development costs and strengthen regulatory compliance with early risk detection, progress measurement and effective vendor/partner selection.
  • IT asset management. Gain a comprehensive view of your hardware and software costs to ensure IT budget efficiency.
  • IT governance risk. Enhance business-IT alignment with effective governance processes, structures and mechanisms, while increasing efficiency, reducing costs and improving sourcing.
  • GRC systems implementation and integration. Reduce the risks of fraud and theft with an effective governance risk and compliance (GRC) program that enforces segregation of duties, restricts access to critical transactions and relies on preventive controls.
