Risk Assessment

Know Your Risks

Schneider Downs identifies and ranks an organization’s most likely and most potentially damaging risks, identifies controls in place, and pinpoints control gaps through the use of a formal risk assessment methodology.

After co-developing with you the strategic objectives for your assessment, our multidisciplinary team of internal auditors, IT specialists and subject matter professionals review all levels of the organization to assess risk, isolate control gaps and propose mitigation strategies for vulnerable areas. The results are typically used to drive a risk-based internal audit plan.
