Technology underpins many of the most influential organisations in the world. It enables the biggest business decisions and connects people around the globe. The opportunities that technology provides are matched only by its potential threats and risks – and this is where we come in.
We work as one team with our Financial Audit colleagues and are responsible for bringing technology specialist skills to the audit. We support the audit in the evaluation of IT systems that underpins an organisation's key financial processes.
Our work gives us exposure to some of the largest global organisations, through to local medium/large sized businesses across all industry sectors, as well as to the breadth of technology used by these organisations (e.g. legacy systems, complex ERPs and emerging technologies). The nature of our work is largely investigative, whereby we look at the processes and controls that an organisation has in place to secure the data transacted through their IT systems.
