Enterprise Risk Management / Governance, Risk and Compliance

Getting the Best Practices in Place

We provide expertise and best practices to help our clients establish and maintain effective risk management functions. To ensure effective risk identification and risk management, we offer the following:

  • ERM Implementations and Risk Assessments

    We work together with boards and executive management with the creation, operation, and maintenance of an enterprise-wide risk management function. This process includes selecting a risk management framework, establishing a risk appetite, identifying and assessing risks across the organization, and developing effective risk mitigation strategies.

  • GRC Implementations / Common Controls

    We help management develop a coordinated strategy to manage the broad issues surrounding corporate governance, risk management and compliance with multiple laws and regulations. This effort is generally performed by integrating a set of common controls to meet the requirements of multiple compliance initiatives.

  • IT Controls for System Implementations

    For strategic and IT initiatives, we provide independent project oversight and quality advisory services. We can perform either pre-implementation or post-implementation assessments surrounding project management practices, process design, data conversions, access controls design, and key configurations.

  • Contingency Planning

    We advise and assess organizations with their plans and objectives related to the development, maintenance and testing of their crisis management, business continuity, and disaster recovery efforts.
