Featured Success Story
KPMG helped a major retail company’s IA group evaluate and test the design and operating effectiveness of many of its corporate IT controls. We analyzed controls to determine whether key risk and emerging technologies were identified , Sarbanes-Oxley requirements were met, sensitive data was adequately protected, and stated company objectives were achieved. Cost efficiency was a significant priority for the engagement and led to off-shoring about 50% of the control test-work. In addition, we focused on assisting with the evaluation of IT risks for ongoing security initiatives around POS encryption, tokenization of credit card information, and Identify Access Management. The engagement team provided a comprehensive summary of recommendations regarding IA’s processes and approach to IT Audit.
