Technology Risk provides assessment and attestation services to help companies and decision-makers attain confidence in understanding and managing business risks related to technology. Business and technology are converging rapidly. With technology becoming the business of every company, understanding, and managing technology risk is critical to a company’s success. The ability to understand these risks and bridge the knowledge gap that often exists between business and technology is the core strength of Technology Risk professionals. Technology Risk helps companies achieve sustainable growth by supporting their efforts to protect business performance, and by providing trusted communications on internal control and regulatory compliance to investors, management, regulators, customers, and other stakeholders.

Service Delivery Center professionals are high-performing, US-based resources who work closely with our region-based Risk professionals to deliver assessment and attestation services, such as financial statement audits, internal audits, internal control testing, system and organization control reporting and other advisory projects, to help companies:

  • Create trust and confidence in financial reporting
  • Provide trusted communications and assurance on internal control or related to regulatory compliance to customers, alliances, strategic partners, governments and authorities
  • Meet evolving regulatory and compliance requirements
  • See the big picture related to technology risks
  • Identify, improve and respond to risks from advances in technology
  • Build trust in new technology products and services from the outset
  • Undertake proactive technology risk mitigation
  • Control compliance costs
