This approach is complemented by the extensive risk and controls technical knowledge and sector-specific experience of its Risk Assurance professionals. The end result is a risk solution tailored to meet the unique needs of clients.

  • Enterprise risk management and business continuity management - Together at last

    The necessity to define, create and maintain an organization’s business continuity management (BCM) capabilities often arises from a singular event. It could have been, say, a close call that increased awareness that BCM improvements were needed. Or a new regulatory obligation either directly applied or strongly encouraged by a key customer might have led to efforts to improve and document recoverability capabilities. Or growing numbers of cyber threats have become catalysts for improving both BCM and crisis management capabilities. Regardless of how the BCM program gained its initial traction, its development from a narrow focus has li... More »
