Digital Risk Assurance
Helping organisations understand and manage the risks associated with emerging technologies
The pace of technological change is bringing with it unparalleled opportunities for companies to disrupt themselves and enter new markets. The promise of greater productivity, efficiencies and the elimination of human error is well documented.
Less well documented are the new risks that emerging technologies are creating. We help organisations understand and manage these new risks in areas such as robotic process automation (RPA), artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, Internet of things (IoT) and Agile/DevOps software development processes.
We provide confidence and help them leverage investment to ensure that they achieve maximum business benefit.
Assessing the impact of implementing RPA on the control landscape and employing our robotic assurance framework to enable smarter, better and faster assurance over it.
Cloud computing assurance
Helping organisations to understand and manage the control implications of moving to a cloud-based solution as well as helping to manage the transition to, operation of and exit from a cloud solution.
Providing challenge over the life cycle of AI development in areas such as governance, data acquisition and preparation, cyber security and resilience, ethical design and use, deployment, monitoring and ongoing performance.
Providing assurance over emerging systems development methodologies that focus more on collaboration and less on documentation.
Responding to the control challenges that arise on integrating sensors and monitoring technology with an organisation’s internal systems in areas such as cyber security, resilience and ownership of data.
Managing cloud service risks while optimising opportunities
We have conducted ‘health check’ reviews to determine whether clients are adequately managing and mitigating cloud service risks whilst optimising on the opportunities, such as increased agility and modernisation.
Developing automation services for a number of clients
We are working on the development of automation solutions across a range of RPA, machine learning and AI technologies for a number of clients. We use RPA implementation and assurance specialists who have experience and tools to deploy robots and have an understanding of the end to end lifecycle as well as manage the change they bring to the risk profile of automated activities.
