ENHANCE THE STRATEGIC ROLE OF INTERNAL AUDIT

From an increased need for information security to transitioning away from traditional hierarchical structures, the uncertain path for many businesses has only increased the need for shareholder assurance. With these challenges and the greater need for assurance comes the necessity for competent internal auditing.

We provide:

  • A systematic and disciplined approach by adding value to your organization and its strategic initiatives.
  • Objective insights into your business and its operations to maximize efficiency and increase shareholder value. 
  • On demand internal audit project management, support and staffing.

“I have been around the internal audit profession for a long time and have witnessed certain buzz words and philosophies come and go—doing more with less, stop-and-go auditing, embedding data analytics—the list goes on. While I wholeheartedly subscribe to these principles, one thing has always remained the same: the necessity of having really good internal audit skills. Sikich has just that—I am extremely proud of the skill and tenure of my team, which gives us the ability to deliver consistent, thorough, on-time, and on-budget audits.”
