Continuous Auditing and Monitoring 

Continuous Auditing (CA) and Continuous Monitoring (CM) are automated feedback mechanisms used respectively by Internal Audit or Management to monitor IT systems, transactions and controls on a frequent or continuous basis throughout a given period. 


Companies that deploy CA can leverage technology to more effectively analyse risk data on a frequent basis. This approach helps to detect anomalies, outliers, inconsistencies and other factors to more efficiently focus audit resources.


CM provides management with information on key performance metrics in close to real-time, providing enhanced insight into issues as they arise, thereby improving their ability to manage risks and opportunities.



These services assist our non-audit clients in:


assessing and designing overall implementation plans
assessing risk and designing query protocols and reports
directing change management processes
evaluating software tools and providing recommendations
providing recommendations on reporting and dashboards
training management and internal audit
executing continuous audits.


We strategically deploy resources from various disciplines to suit each individual client situation. IT Advisory, Internal Audit and Forensics professionals typically comprise the core team, adding industry and subject matter specific resources as appropriate.



Our resident skills sets and experience include:


Governance, Risk & Compliance suite tools associated with major Enterprise Resource Planning systems
fraud risk assessment and anti-fraud process evaluation
enterprise risk assessment
risk and controls knowledge, emphasising industry-specific and compliance-driven issues.



Our CA/CM services are aligned to meet the needs of key stakeholder groups:


Board of Directors — Our services deliver regular insight into the status of controls and transactions across a global enterprise. They also help to improve the overall risk and control oversight capability through enhanced detection and monitoring.
Management — CM provides senior management with improved visibility across the organisation, enhancing oversight capabilities and providing line managers with better tools to manage day-to-day responsibilities.
Internal Audit — CA provides early warning of problems so that Internal Audit can address control or transaction failures closer to their occurrence.
