Managing Reputational Risk

Colleges and universities understand their success is largely dependent on their image in the eye of the public. Recent events have proven that the effects of reputation-damaging events are immeasurable.

IntegraProtect consists of a suite of services that can help institutions identify and manage key risks that can impact their overall reputation. Different applications can be performed individually or collectively, depending upon the concerns of the university board of trustees or management. The applications represent one-off projects—as areas of concern are identified—providing detailed reports outlining applicable trends, risks and control activities. The ultimate goal is for the institution to implement a control framework and establish a formal process to monitor various risks on an ongoing basis.

IntegraProtect isn’t just a suite of services; it can help you establish a culture dedicated to protecting your reputation.

“I knew BKD had a focus in organizations like us and felt that we could benefit from their industry experience and technical knowledge. Having an audit can be a necessary evil. If that’s all you get, you’re not getting much value. A lot of firms can do an audit, but BKD brings value.”
