RSM’s internal audit services will help your organisation to identify and take action to protect itself from the greatest risks to its strategy, finances and operations.
An organisation’s failure to manage risks effectively can ultimately lead to its demise. Organisations therefore need a focused approach to internal audit and risk management. RSM tailors its internal audit to your organisation’s sector, size, risk appetite and regulatory requirements. We focus on delivering a bespoke internal audit solution that provides the assurance and advice you need and suits the way you do business. We assist with outsourcing/co-sourcing, internal audit transformation and internal audit start-up, as well as helping clients improve their internal controls to boost efficiency and value. We can provide extensive knowledge, sector specialisms and technical risk expertise, which we will tailor to your individual needs.
Identify and mitigate the most serious risks to your business
Our risk-based approach identifies the strategic, operational and financial risks where organisations require assurance and advice. RSM then works to ensure that your systems, processes, people and working practices are all aligned for the purpose of managing risks and achieving your business objectives. We identify areas of control weakness and then agree with management prioritised corrective actions, setting out a clear path for continual improvement and risk mitigation. RSM also helps organisations which already have some of the necessary skills in this area, by providing supplementary expertise where needed. Some of our clients require full outsourced solutions, while others already have established internal audit functions and simply need specialist co-sourced support. Whatever your organisation’s needs, our experienced internal audit and risk management professionals are ready to help you improve your systems of governance, risk and control.
Governance and risk
Effective risk management and good governance are the bedrock of all successful organisations. If this goes wrong the ramifications can be deeply damaging. Where organisations get it right they can become more efficient, more effective and better at delivering what their customers want.
It is quite straightforward really: the less that goes wrong in your organisation, the less (unexpected) cost you will incur when putting it right.
The reality is that few organisations take stock and ensure their risk management and governance arrangements are as effective as they should or could be. This often only changes when the organisation is driven by regulators to do so, or when the cracks are starting to show - though by then it is often too late.
RSM’s governance and risk consulting team is here to help you ensure that you get the most value from your governance and risk management. We achieve this through reviewing, refining, designing and implementing practical and proportionate governance and risk management solutions.
