Technology Risk Advisory

Businesses today churn out a considerable amount of digital footprint and require extensive data connectivity via computers, smartphones, tablets, video conferencing and VOIP to conduct their daily business operations.

As Information Technology (IT) becomes an integral part to gain a competitive edge, companies are operating in an increasingly complex digital environment. Organisations rely on IT, yet the trust they place in IT is challenged continuously by data breaches, data leakage, system weakness, fraud and corruption.
