What is on top of our client´s mind at the moment?
Cybersecurity Assessment for our audit clients
To remain competitive, a business must constantly change and adapt to a changing business environment and to the evolving threats that come along with those changes.
As a result, the organizations’ cybersecurity requirements will need to change as well — changing the control infrastructure and technology capability/usage to support the improved situational awareness of known risks. If an organization doesn’t adapt, its cybersecurity foundation will quickly be obsolete. We offer Cybersecurity Assessment services also for our audit clients. Below you find what the Cyber Program Assessment and Technical Vulnerability Scan include.

Navigating Brexit uncertainty - Is your business ready for Brexit?
On 19 March 2018 the UK and EU signed off on two key political documents relating to the UK’s future exit from the EU. These documents cover both the transition period as well as guidelines for the forthcoming negotiations over the future EU-UK relationship post-Brexit. This represents significant progress on the UK’s exit from the EU, and increases the likelihood of a negotiated exit.
Since June 2016, EY has been assisting clients across the globe to develop dynamic plans to respond to any Brexit outcome, detailing ‘no regrets’ moves, hedges and scenario-specific responses. In a large proportion of sectors, this has now transitioned into implementation projects, designed to deliver certainty on business continuity.
Through these projects, EY has developed an ultra-pragmatic approach that identifies minimum requirements to avoid Brexit disruption, focuses on material impacts and also converts the risks into opportunities. Our Brexit team is highly connected across the Brexit ecosystem, leveraging direct experience from EU negotiations and links into the highest levels of government to help clients shape the agenda and to separate genuinely significant developments from noise.

How can organizations continue to grow while decreasing cost of compliance and controls?
Enabling compliance and process optimization through SAP GRC
The role of automation in reducing costs and enabling the more effective use of resources has been widely recognized as a key success factor to managing compliance while adding value to the business. However, many companies have not been able to implement this principle effectively. Developing a clear road map with “quick wins” and strategically leveraging GRC technology to enable its implementation continue to be a challenge and an opportunity.
GRC technology can be leveraged to enable, integrate and optimize their risk management functions and processes, while focusing on supporting strategic objectives and creating value. GRC technologies successfully transform risk performance levels by:
- Automating and standardizing processes and controls
- Embedding and maintaining one single version of risk and control data
- Managing holistic views of risk and compliance exposures
- Generating dynamic and real-time risk and control intelligence and reporting
- Analyzing risk-driven indicators and exception-based decision making
- Escalating via workflow through different levels of the organization
- Real-time reporting and monitoring of risks creating a foundation for strategic objectives.
