Internal Audit

An independent internal audit can add value to your organization and improve its operations. Through objective evaluation of your organization’s processes for risk management, internal control and corporate governance, BKD IT Risk Services' (ITRS) internal audit process can help you reach compliance objectives or recommend a direction for voluntary sustainability and improvement.

Tailored Approach

BKD offers a risk-based, process-driven approach tailored to your company and needs. By utilizing a risk assessment process, we can help you identify vulnerable key areas, reducing time spent on lower risk items.

Incorporating Control and Operational Audits

The expectations of internal audit have evolved to require consideration of all aspects of your business. When applicable, BKD incorporates SOX compliance, operational auditing, process improvement and fraud detection into our internal audit approach.

Integration of Information Technology

Most companies are dependent on their information systems, and many controls are based on automated processes. Our approach recognizes this fact and integrates this important component.
