We improve your business by improving your internal controls!
We are a professional services firm focused on managing business risks. We specialize in internal auditing, physical and cybersecurity, regulatory compliance, fraud prevention and detection, project management, and training. We are a sponsor of the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) and are authorized to issue Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits to our seminar attendees.
We recognize the need for organizations to run their operations in a cost-effective manner. We collaborate with your staff to deliver sustainable solutions. We have deep expertise in financial services, aerospace & defense, IT, manufacturing, distribution, retail, healthcare, and service industries.
Our audits include consultations, walkthroughs, and document inspections to map your:
- organizational objectives,
- risks and problems that impede or could impede those objectives, and
- internal controls designed to mitigate risks.
We deliver a comprehensive yet concise report based on our independent assessment of your internal controls to balance the risks. This confidential report has pragmatic, risk-ranked suggestions to tighten up your internal control gaps, and identifies corrective actions with cost analyses, accountabilities, and proposed implementation schedules.
We can develop or critique your policies and procedures to comply with internal and external requirements, shore up your internal controls, and improve your posture with clients, customers, suppliers, auditors, and regulators.
