Audit & Security
Secure processes mitigate risks
Organizations are increasingly embracing more complex and sophisticated technology solutions in an effort to provide a wider range of services, reach more customers and drive greater efficiencies. Internal audit functions must ensure the right technology risks are identified and related controls assessed. This includes cyber security, growing technology resilience dependencies, as well as challenges with implementation of digitalization across the business. The risks associated with such solutions are significant, and if not addressed properly can result in severe impacts on operations with associated adverse reputational impacts, costs, and in some instances, regulator intervention.
BDO’s audit team is well versed in assessing traditional and emerging technology risks and support audit functions when undertaking annual IT audit planning (including the production of the IT audit plan itself). An IT audit maximizes performances, established continuity and provides for risk management. In our audit approach, we will make an inventory of existing control measures, linking risks and measures into a control matrix, resulting an in advice on additional control measures to be implemented.
