Ready for strategic risk management? Start with our interactive SOD matrix
Taking a fresh look at your current risk and control environment, at a holistic organizational level, is a large undertaking. That’s why we recommend starting with your most critical accounting processes, including those related to cash disbursements, procurement, and payroll. Without the proper SOD or controls, these areas are ripe for threats like unauthorized transactions, misappropriation of funds, and fraud — all of which could have steep negative consequences at both a business and personal level.
Our interactive SOD matrix will:
- Give you a sense of incompatible duties that may be present and potential compensating controls for cash disbursements, procurement, and payroll.
- Walk you through the top questions you and your team should ask and answer on a regular basis as your organization grows or changes over time (e.g., when new technologies are implemented, when new staff are hired, when core processes are streamlined, etc.)
- Highlight the key areas you should address now to reduce risk, based on your responses.
Level up your risk management strategy and opportunities with an external review
After performing your internal review, don’t stop there: stay proactive in assessing your control environment and then update your business practices accordingly. This is where a professional advisor can add substantial value. In addition to peace of mind, an external consultant can provide practical solutions or opportunities that are scalable to your organization, even if you have headcount or budget limitations.
If you’d like to discuss your results, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d love to continue the conversation and share how our team can help your organization achieve SOD and manage risk strategically.
