Despite 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, organisations need to ensure the integrity, confidentiality and availability of information and the underlying systems.
Deloitte’s Information & Controls Assurance experts focus on the identification and mitigation of risks affecting internal systems, business processes, projects, applications, data, and third parties.
Better controls drive better business. The ability of an organisation to control its risks is critical to continued success. It also keeps costs down, grows revenue, secures assets and meets legal and regulatory compliance. Getting controls wrong costs money, wastes resources, leaves organisations exposed, increases compliance costs and can distract management from running the business.
When management knows they have the right controls, they can rely on those controls to manage the risks that they take. In challenging times, even the most mature organisations should consider whether their controls are relevant, efficient and adaptable to their needs.
Our dedicated team members have the unique combination of deep technical skills and a background in risk and controls, allowing us to engage effectively with organisations' compliance, business and IT functions. Deloitte has developed tools (such as for SAP and Oracle) to enable us to efficiently validate security and controls. Deloitte works with clients across Financial Services, Consumer Business, Energy, Resources and transportation, Manufacturing, and Technology, Media and Telecommunications.
