Efficient Compliance Audits of Your Service Providers

14. May 2020

Outsourcing certain tasks to external service providers has become an integral part of business operations. Whether it’s data center services, software development, the use of cloud services or call center services: cooperation with third parties is a valuable part of your own business operations. However, it also means that you have to rely on others and thus delegate some of the control over the success of your business. And the more external parties are involved, the more complex and difficult it becomes to clearly assess the situation.

What does the cooperation mean for information and IT security? How can compliance with regulatory, compliance and quality requirements be monitored and ensured for all parties? Because one thing is certain: Even if data, services and processes are transferred to service providers – responsibility cannot be outsourced.

As a globally operating auditor, we have many years of experience when it comes to efficiently guiding companies to compliance. We examine technical, procedural and organizational measures internally at your company or at your service providers and act as a neutral third party. We would be happy to provide you with an efficient audit program that fits your environment and your requirements. Here you can find more information.
