What are the risks to your business?

A company’s future depends on its ability to identify and manage risk. Effective risk management requires an effective internal audit function.

In a complex organization, a successful internal audit function has a dual role: it supports
the Audit Committee in its fiduciary duties related to internal control—and it partners with management in performing risk assessment and risk management.

Does your internal audit function identify and evaluate the risks that confront your business?

In an ideal world, a progressive internal audit function would work adaptively within an organization. However, the post-SOX environment is anything but ideal. Many organizations lack the leading tools and necessary technology to perform an internal audit efficiently and cost-effectively.

Schneider Downs offers eight risk-based risk advisory service options to ensure compliance, mitigate uncertainties and keep inefficiencies from eroding your bottom line. We work hand-in-hand with your audit committee and primary auditor on risk and control strategies to fully leverage internal audit and minimize compliance/audit costs.
