From the Advisory Institute
Companies are increasingly outsourcing business functions as a way of reducing costs, focusing on core competencies or deploying new IT functions more quickly.
The cloud is accelerating this trend towards greater use of third parties for certain operations. But outsourcing also brings risks, particularly around whether the provider has adequate internal controls to ensure security and protect sensitive data.
This growing need for assurance is being met by KPMG’s IT Attestation services. This brochure helps companies understand how an outsource provider such as KPMG can help them build confidence in the attestation of their control environment.
