Internal Audit and Risk Management Services
Impact Consulting has had experience with conducting project risk assessments, Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) and Integrated Risk Management Framework (IRMF)-based audits and reviews, risk and control assessments, privacy compliance assessments, as well as the provision of other strategic risk advisory services.
Our areas of specialization include:
We are qualified to assist public and private sector clients to meet compliance standards associated with the Management Accountability Framework, the AS/ NZ 4360 and/ or COSO Enterprise Risk Management regimes, federal and provincial privacy legislation, the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) principles and European and US regulations pertaining to the value chain traceability/ tracking of food products.
Impact Consulting also frequently performs reviews of the insurance portfolios maintained by our clients, but notably, this service is only offered to those who have recently had the benefit of a more broadly-based risk management audit (given that insurance, at best, only serves as a partial solution to risk -- after other more significant risk management tools have been applied to the task).
Impact Consulting is especially qualified to undertake risk and insurance audits of the export portfolios of Canadian enterprises. We often determine that this is one area where risk and insurance management tools can be employed as a "sword rather than a shield" -- allowing a given firm to leverage additional export sales (without undue risk), bring forward the dates of recognizing export income, strengthen banking lines, etc.
