Risk Assurance

Building trust and confidence in every aspect of business – All Eyes on Trust

Using risk to drive strategic performance

With changing consumer needs, complex global supply chains, new business models and evolving technology, organisations have to adapt at an unprecedented pace. Add the power that social media has to amplify the voice of the consumer, and it's clear that building trust – especially digital trust – is no longer merely about showing character and doing the right thing. It’s about risk, and realising that risk management and assurance involves much more than just mitigating threats.

PwC's Risk Assurance services ensure that your organisation manages business risk as an asset rather than just a potential loss, transforming challenges into an opportunity. We have the practical experience and smart digital tools to identify weak spots, assess the risks – including organisational, technology and IT risks – and set up a future-proof risk management process.

In other words, we help you take risk management to the next level. The Risk Assurance experts at PwC help clients transform their approach from simply reacting to risk and compliance requirements to using risk as a strategic performance driver. Our Risk Assurance practice combines rich audit, assurance and risk management expertise to look beyond the financial statement audit to other critical areas of the business, including IT audit. Our team is there to bring clients the insight, confidence and assurance they need to step up their management of risks and opportunities and build resilience, confidence and stakeholder trust.

Trust and Transparency Solutions

Trust is so important where you rely on others to keep your promises. Specialisation, offshoring, outsourcing and cost-cutting – this is the reality of business, and your reliance on third parties will only grow. A complex portfolio of relationships needs to work effectively to deliver the promises you make to all your stakeholders.
