Internal Audit

Organisations in the commercial, institutional and Public Sectors are facing an increased requirement for a robust internal audit function. The internal audit function provides boards, audit committees, management, regulators and other stakeholders with assurance that key organisational risks are effectively managed and that an effective controls framework is in place.

Risk management

An effective risk management framework provides executive management and the Board with assurance that major organisational risks are identified and appropriately managed. Risk is essential to business. All organisations face uncertainty and challenge and as such are exposed to a certain degree of risk. Risks, depending on how they are addressed, can either erode or enhance the value of your organisation. Enterprise risk management can be used as a process to evaluate and monitor such risks, by assessing opportunities and strengths against limitations and weakness, so as to enable the organisation to make decisions in a transparent and effective manner.

SSAE 16 & ISAE 3402

From June 2011 the widely used SAS 70 report on controls at a service organisation was superseded by ISAE 3402 and SSAE 16. ISAE 3402 is an international audit standard and SSAE 16 is an American standard.
