Building and maintaining trust has never been more important or more challenging. Business operations are being transformed. This has an inevitable impact on what information companies need to manage the business and communicate externally. Learn more about how to influence and shape the reporting agenda to respond to these dynamics.
Data integrity is a key concern for all businesses. Businesses and auditors constantly make decisions based on the data held within the IT systems.
As systems become more complex and fundamental to the operation and direction of the business, the importance of the underlying data and the information it generates has never been greater. Organisations need to feel confident that the information can be relied upon to make decisions, highlight opportunities and identify risks. We help our clients get comfort over their data and gain assurance that it meets their business needs.
Information Technology (“IT”) environments continue to increase in complexity with ever greater reliance on the information produced by IT systems and processes. The recent emergence of regulations aiming to restore the investor confidence placed a greater emphasis on internal controls and often requires independent assessments of the effectiveness of internal controls.
Are you confident that business benefits will be appropriately identified and realized? Do you have confidence that your projects will be completed on-time, on budget and to the required quality?
Have you identified how you can enhance your internal control environment to more effectively and efficiently meet your operational, regulatory and financial reporting requirements?
Even though IT risks are on the Board’s agenda more than ever before, few Boards understand the full degree of their operational dependence on computer systems and the role that IT plays in shaping their firm’s strategies. It is therefore increasingly critical that Internal Audit (IA) focus their IT audit effort on the things that matter and communicate those issues in a way that the Board can understand them.
Automation is about all of those things. And every company needs to take a serious look at how they’re approaching it, especially as new tools put the power to solve problems and streamline tasks into the hands of business users.
