Track record
Interim CAE
A company in the financial sector needed to fill the Chief Audit Executive (CAE) position temporarily, with short notice. We were able to immediately fill the position with an experienced consultant with previous experience of leading functions. Due to high turnover in the audit department, we also performed some of the planned audits with our staff to keep up with the audit plan. Since none of the old staff was left when the new CAE arrived, we also ensured a smooth introduction and transition.

Outsourced internal audit function
A company within the energy industry saw both financial and qualitative benefits from outsourcing the internal audit function. Our proposal with very experienced internal audit / IT audit consultants who could team up with several subject matter experts within relevant areas such as compliance, privacy and cyber security was considered a perfect match for their need. Our pragmatic approach and a proposed audit plan with a balance of risk-based audits and compliance-oriented audits, were in line with the organization’s ambition level.
