Organizations are exposed to significant risks, both internal and external, that must be identified, controlled and minimized.
There are many key issues that companies cannot ignore, namely: internal information, control processes, key contracts with vendors and clients, negative environmental impacts, money laundering regulations, business continuity, among others.
It is necessary to achieve appropriate balance between existing risks and implemented controls.
RSM El Salvador has a team of specialists with broad expertise in risk control, prevention solutions and damages/fraud investigation.
IT and Administrative Auditing
Provides diagnosis and review of internal controls in order to establish and implement the required fraud prevention and detection mechanisms.
Several companies that are subsidiaries of US Stock Exchanges or US securities market listed companies are subject to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regulations. We offer services aimed at assisting companies with the compliance of the 2002 Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act requirements, which include internal controls and IT processes documentation, testing and evidence.
Organizations are exposed to external risks such as contracts with third parties, the local and international markets they operate in, the credit and exchange market and others. The RSM El Salvador team diagnoses and helps minimize such risks through the application of tools and methods that are appropriate for each specific business.
IT security is a key aspect for the organization at large. The correct protection of data bases, access to information, access passwords management, systems operation and sustainability, efficiency in data circulation, detection of vulnerabilities in the information and systems, physical security, control and validation of IT applications, among others, are all matters that should be seen to in order to minimize potential risks. A correct audit of IT security may prevent eventual failures that might have a highly negative impact on the company's operations.
