Control, Compliance & Security


Risk is a fact of life. But today, organizations face a complex and demanding risk environment. Increased public scrutiny and insistence on transparency and accountability. They must balance a need for cost controls with expanding regulations requiring comprehensive and often costly compliance initiatives. Globalization and sophisticated new technologies compound the challenges.

With the right integrated approach, one that incorporates both business and technology needs, risk can be viewed as a strategic opportunity to drive performance, enhance bottom-line results and create sustainable value.

Enterprise Risk Assessment and Management

Business doesn't have to be a risky endeavor

You have a fiduciary responsibility to foster an effective Enterprise Risk Management program to protect your organization’s integrity, viability and value. Experis simplifies the process.

We start with an Enterprise Risk Assessment to identify and prioritize the risks affecting your business. Then, we develop a comprehensive, multi-year audit program to address these risks, and also track your internal control environment for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.

Financial Institution Audit

In high-risk times, the right partner is key

Regulatory agencies and public demand have placed a greater emphasis on internal controls over financial institutions. But finding high-value solutions designed specifically for financial institutions can be difficult. Experis is the solution.

We custom-tailor our solutions to fit your needs, working to support your existing departments or provide full function outsourcing. We manage or support existing audit functions and perform audits. Focus your limited resources by having Experis perform a risk assessment, including the development of a monitoring program and audit schedule, assessment of the training program and enhancement of policies and procedures based on the results. We can also help design or audit your financial institution’s technology controls and security.

Fraud Risk Assessment & Management

Are your valuable assets at risk of internal or external fraud?

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners estimates the average loss per company due to fraud is approximately seven percent of gross revenue. Even if the number is somewhat lower, can you afford to lose that revenue or have your reputation damaged? You could even be fined or serve jail time for failing to address the risk of fraud.

Today, there’s also additional scrutiny on fraud. And the Department of Justice has increased its efforts in enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. For most organizations, it’s really not a question of if, but when, fraud will occur.

To address fraud risk, you need a comprehensive, formal program that includes specific risk assessments to identify malicious acts — the most effective tools in combating fraud.

Don’t wait until a fraud has occurred. Protect your organization's integrity and good name. Experis’ Fraud Risk Assessment and Management Services help prevent, deter and detect potential fraud schemes. We identify and prioritize your fraud risks, evaluate your organization’s existing fraud controls, and provide recommendations and remediation services. We also help you comply with the regulatory demands of Sarbanes-Oxley legislation.

From high-level assessments to comprehensive fraud-prevention engagements, Experis helps protect your good name.

Ultimately, Experis helps your company achieve the optimal state of Enterprise Risk Management.

Quality Assessment Review

IIA compliance made simple

At least every five years, the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) requires an external assessment of an organization's audit function for quality and compliance with IIA standards.

An Experis Quality Assessment Review (QAR) is a four-phase evaluation of an organization's core internal audit components, including planning; data gathering; assessment and gap analysis; and reporting. Through our evaluation you get a comprehensive assessment of internal audit effectiveness.

Using methodologies that have been fine-tuned over many engagements, our QAR allows your internal audit function to assert within its charter and audit reports that it complies with IIA standards.

Sarbanes-Oxley Regulatory Compliance

Sarbanes-Oxley compliance made simple

Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) requires management of every company to include an evaluation of its internal controls over financial reporting in its annual report, including non-accelerated filers.

Technology Risk Assessment

A report card on your IT profile

A Technology Risk Assessment from Experis provides you with a comprehensive evaluation of your entire technology profile – including your people and processes.

We identify risks that could impact the integrity of your information systems and technology infrastructure. We also identify the controls and associated risks that could affect your ability to rely on your IT processes. Experis Technology Risk Assessments are customized to evaluate critical functions at the enterprise, business-unit, or technology-component level.

Consider our assessment a “report card,” grading the IT risks facing your company. And, like any report card, it shows areas for improvement.
