IT Risk Management and Assurance
Whether mandated by law or best practice, regular risk assessment is crucial for most enterprises. Evaluating key risk areas annually – and prior to major technology implementation – enables our clients to target their actions as part of a comprehensive action plan.
Many organizations lack the expertise internally to objectively assess their IT risks. Others simply prefer a third-party to bring their fresh perspective. Eminere Group offers both high level and detailed assessments and IT risk management services by providing independent analyses and reports to meet regulatory and business requirements, risk management plans and detailed action plans to be used to address key risk gaps.
