Systems Audit & Consulting

Information Technology (IT) plays a fundamental role in today’s enterprise, supporting the framework for business infrastructure. Many organizations do not have the knowledge base, resources, time or budget to become experts in the multi-faceted area of technology. In today’s competitive landscape it is essential to confirm findings through a thorough and objective assessment.

A few of the many reasons a company may look to a systems audit consulting firm include an IT risk assessment has not been performed recently, an IT audit function needs outside guidance or additional resources, new systems and technology are being deployed, cyber-security is getting attention from senior leadership requiring additional insights, business continuity and systems are at risk in a disabling event, or a client’s customers are asking for a SOC 1, SOC 2 or SOC 3 attestation/audit/reports.

At AC Lordi, we focus on areas where we can provide credibility, experience, valuable insights and assurances.  With technology changing so rapidly, and the risk expending exponentially, we have a diverse background in dealing with constant change, and a variety of experiences with a wide array of platforms, software, and technology risk assessment and mitigation approaches. Over the years we have worked with numerous audit committees, boards of directors and executive leadership, so we understand their language, concerns, needs and goals.

  • IT Regulatory Compliance
  • IT Audit Outsourcing and Co-sourcing
