Identify and Mitigate Risk

Rapid Change Brings Heighted Risk

Enterprises are rapidly transforming to meet their customers’ demands for fast, seamless and user-friendly technologies to conduct business. As new process, technology and organization change is implemented, companies want validation that their transformation has minimal risk of failure.

Transformations bring various risks, including potential Technology risks (such as the strategies, processes, systems and people that manage technologies) and Operational risks (which can be process, technology or people driven).

Risk Management

We help identify and mitigate the risks associated with new implementations of process, technology and organization changes. Our experts are focused on delivering rapid value through transparent assessment processes and frequent communication so you can quickly understand and mitigate your risks.

We can help develop the strategies, processes, systems and people to effectively manage these potential risks and ensure your new technologies and processes align with your business objectives.

Our Risk Management solutions harness the power of industry standards, proprietary methodologies and domain expertise to bring Agile methods in conducting Risk Management projects including IV&V.

Public Sector Risk Management

Federal and quasi-federal entities face multiple transformation hurdles that create potential risks. We understand these unique challenges to transformation and provide specialized Risk Management for the Public Sector that includes:

  • Legacy System – Many are operating monolithic, legacy systems that are often ridged and fail to meet today’s digital business needs.
  • Costly Upgrades – Legacy technology portfolios are often redundant and expensive to upgrade, which detracts from other modernization goals.
  • Gaps in Skillsets – Teams may not be equipped to implement new process, technology and organizational change.
  • Regulatory & Compliance Rules – Public Sector regulations may impede in the adoption of new technology and process.
