IT assurance & advisory

Build trust with a robust approach to technology, processes and controls

Businesses are increasingly reliant on technology, which creates opportunities as well as risks. As the regulatory environment grows in complexity, companies must ensure their IT systems are secure. Our IT assurance and advisory specialists can work with you to improve your overall technology risk framework.


Our approach

Digital transformation has created significant efficiencies for companies, opened up new business opportunities, and in many cases helped to drive growth. But as IT systems become more and more complex, it is critical that companies are aware of the potential risks they face. These include cyber security threats, data leaks, system disruption and potential non-compliance with regulations in the event of a failure.

At Forvis Mazars, our IT assurance advisors take an integrated, risk-based approach to provide deep insight into technology risks for boards, audit committees and senior management executives. We offer extensive sector experience across a broad spectrum of technology consulting and assurance solutions, covering cyber security, data protection, data management, IT audit, IT operations and forensic technologies.

Our focus is on providing you with a solution that works for you and your organisation:

  • Working with your lines of defense to provide assurance in the technology environment used for business and financial activities
  • Improving confidence in technology-dependent internal controls as a result of business growth
  • Assessing and minimising technology risks within existing technology frameworks and new business initiatives, such as implementing new technologies or launching new products or services
  • Providing insights on key technology challenges and future trends

We are able to assist with the following services:
