Technology & systems assurance

Few organisations can avoid the need to understand and manage technology related risks; whether these are from external sources such as the internet, or from sources within the organisation. Many organisations find it difficult to objectively assess and manage these risks.

Our Technology & Systems Assurance (TSA) team can provide you with an independent view of the technology risks that you face and the adequacy and effectiveness of the controls you have in place over the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your systems and data. We can also provide you with access to automated assessment tools and comparisons with industry best practice; allowing you to assess how effectively you are managing your IT systems.

Typically our work is focused on the following areas:

  • ERP advisory services
  • IT governance and management procedures
  • IT based controls in business applications
  • implementations of new systems
  • network security testing
  • IT elements of industry regulation and compliance (e.g. SOX, SAS70, FSA).

Our team hold a variety of qualifications; including PRINCE2, CISA, CISM, CISSP, ISO27001, CCNA and includes a number of qualified accountants. We deal with a wide range of accounting systems, ranging from Sage to the larger ERP applications such as Oracle and SAP.
