Proactive Compliance

In enterprises where compliance is a known cost of doing business and auditing is a predictable task, a pre-emptive approach to compliance can reduce the cost of compliance projects down the line, and leave the enterprise well-prepared for future auditor visits

A proactive approach to compliance management is accomplished through two steps:

  1. Build and Manage the Compliance Framework
  2. Assure Ongoing Integrity of Internal Controls
