Upcoming: IFACI 2018

Increased regulation, increased risks with the advent of new technologies … internal audit is gaining importance within companies. But to achieve its revolution, the internal audit function needs to become more digital.

On November 15 and 16, 2018, at the Beffroi de Montrouge, come and contribute to the discussions on the evolution of the GRC profession and risk management as a whole.

As a PwC study points out, exploiting new technologies – including collaboration, data extraction, data analysis and automation – will improve internal audit processes, and so too its contribution to the company’s performance.

Partner interview: BDO on digital compliance in Africa

Partner interview: BDO on digital compliance in Africa – part one:
Digital compliance is something that lies at the core of what OXIAL offers. In a world of ever-growing compliance and risk management complexity, the idea that an organisation wouldn’t use automation and digital compliance to help manage this, is baffling.

We work with a number of partners that really augment our digital compliance offering. Smart consultants that understand the requirements of modern global compliance are an integral part of digital compliance and this is a model that is really starting to resonate with businesses in different countries all over the world.

Partner interview: BDO on digital compliance in Africa – part two

In the first part of our interview with Zakaria Fahim, the Managing Partner & Head of Advisory, BDO Morocco, we discussed some of the challenges African companies are facing around risk management and compliance. Zakaria explained how the complexity of modern compliance, combined with a lack of tools and the wrong approach was spurring African companies to look to external support when managing compliance.

In this second part of the Q&A, Zakaria expands on that, outlines how the BDO and OXIAL partnership can benefit African businesses and speculates as to what the future of compliance will look like.

Nearly three in 10 organisations still not GDPR-ready…is your firm one of them?

Nearly three in 10 organisations still not GDPR-ready…is your firm one of them?

More than three months on from the deadline of 25 May to be compliant with the European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), new research has revealed that 28% of organisations do not feel completely compliant.
This idea of a number of European businesses not being GDPR-ready was highlighted further in the research conducted at Infosecurity Europe by security firm Imperva, with nearly one-fifth of respondents not confident that they will pass their initial GDPR audit.

Why Brexit is the ultimate in risk management

Why Brexit is the ultimate in risk management
Brexit has undoubtedly been one of the most talked-about political events of the past few decades…and it hasn’t even taken place yet. On 29 March 2019, the UK will leave the European Union and the impact on businesses across the continent will be huge.

Or alternatively, the impact on European businesses could be much smaller – at this stage no one is really sure what will happen. There could be a hard Brexit, soft Brexit or even a no deal scenario and how people think events will unfold is highly subjective. That’s why managing and preparing for Brexit is perhaps the ultimate in risk management.
