Identifying and Addressing Risks to Government Operations

Overlooking exposures to operational, process, and IT threats can leave government organizations vulnerable and present barriers to achieving core missions. Some behaviors and environments also can increase the likelihood of fraudulent activities by employees.

Crowe Horwath LLP government specialists use a broad perspective on government operations and a tailored method to help detect and address risks to:

  • Apply internal audit to identify and resolve threats, vulnerabilities, and weak controls
  • Develop enterprise risk management strategies to quantify and manage risks to systems, processes, and controls
  • Leverage IT audits to support security and privacy efforts by evaluating IT controls and procedures
  • Initiate proactive anti-fraud programs using forensic investigations
  • Monitor complex regulations, design internal controls, and implement corrective action plans
  • Maintain timely, cost-effective projects with independent verification and validation (IV&V)

Many public sector entities rely on Crowe government professionals to assist in identifying and addressing operational risks:
