Risk advisory services to identify and manage business risk

The Risk Advisory services provided by RSM Australia assist organisations in identifying and managing risks through the integration of their culture, systems, and processes.

In today’s increasingly complex and ever-changing landscape, many businesses are becoming more and more vulnerable to the dangers of cyber risk, operational risk, regulatory risk and investigation, reputation risk as well as fraud and corruption.

From improving business processes and assessing risks for business performance, to creating business continuity plans and disaster recovery programs through a detailed risk assessment, RSM offers a wide range of services to identify and manage business risks by developing a business risk management.


As recent history demonstrates, from the global banking crisis to the rise of cybercrime, managing business risks should be embedded within the culture of every organisation so that everyone is focused on identifying threats and developing an appropriate response.

In fact, the identification of risk and compliance is an opportunity to prepare a risk strategy, respond and emerge stronger in order to help make decisions, support business performance and objectives as well as prevent loss, damage or harm to the business. 

With our risk advisory solutions, we maximize business operations and performance by identifying and predicting threats, and subsequently mitigating risk and resolving imminent threats.

Risk assurance has developed beyond the provision of retrospective comfort to stakeholders and is gaining recognition as a “business partner” and “change agent” to provide management and the board with advice and where necessary, insight. 

To successfully focus on enhancing and protecting organisations, our risk assurance professionals first turn their attention towards the outcome and start engaging with your business to enhance, protect and create value.
