Bridging the gap between business and IT.
Effective IT Assurance comes down to knowing what matters to your business. It’s honing in on the key concerns and the relevant controls and processes to effectively manage your unique risks. Otherwise, it’s easy to end up unnecessarily lost in detailed technicalities that wastes resources, while still not addressing your needs.
At Decision Point, we keep things simple. While we have detailed, technical knowledge in IT, we also live & breathe “business” – so we can easily bridge the two. We approach IT Assurance from both a business and IT perspective, using tools, methodology and frameworks that are scalable to any organization.
With our practical approach, we can assist with the following IT Assurance projects:
IT CONTROLS ASSESSMENTS
Once the standard or framework best suited to your business is determined, we’ll review the IT controls around your key IT processes. Then, we’ll help you prioritize our findings and recommend the IT controls improvements needed within the assessed areas.
IT RISK ASSESSMENTS
Based on your IT environment and processes, we’ll help you understand where there may be risks to your organization. The risks are ranked in a practical manner, so your mitigation plans are right for your organization.
IT AUDIT PREP: SOC1 & SOC2 READINESS SERVICE
We assist with your IT audit preparation by completing a gap assessment to determine where your deficiencies lie and what remediation is required to fix the issues so your audit runs smoothly. We can also help in developing your management report to describe your company’s systems and controls.
Whether there’s a new IT project you’re contemplating, or you’re feeling off-track with a current implementation, we can guide you smoothly through the process. With our customized assessments, we identify any gaps or changes needed, along with appropriate recommendations, to set you up for success.
