Risk Advisory Services

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 seven 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.
