The best way to prepare for your company’s future — whether that means positioning for growth, preparing for change or simply being able to sleep at night knowing your company is secure — is to have a solid understanding of the business from the inside out. That starts with understanding which areas of your business are at risk for errors or, worse, fraud. Even if your business is smaller or if you view it as less complex, the benefits can be significant. Our job is to help you keep this process manageable and beneficial. First, we work with you to identify which specific process or processes pose the greatest risks, instead of trying to tackle the entire business at once. Next, we take a systematic approach to documenting those processes, capturing each individual’s assigned tasks and identifying any areas of concern (control deficiencies) or inefficiencies. From there, we recommend improvements to controls already in place or new controls that will help mitigate risks. We can also assess if everything is operating effectively via testing.
We have a deep knowledge of internal control concepts and practices, and undergo continual training specific to this area. Our expertise has helped a wide range of companies improve their internal control environments.
