Internal Audit

Be assured – are your risks managed adequately and effectively?

Internal audit (IA), or the third line of Defence, is a key component of a modern corporate governance. The “Three lines of Defence” model is a conceptual delineation of an organisation’s internal control levels: first line controls (the business), second level monitoring controls (Compliance and Risk Control) and third-line independent assurance.

Acronym offer a wide range of audit services:

  • We are your independent IA-function (outsourcing)
  • We support your existing IA-function
  • We help you review and validate your IT-systems and model risk management for Anti-Money Laundering and Counter Terrorism Financing purpose

With our auditing method, which is based on a risk-based approach, we provide assurance to the organization’s board of directors and senior management.

Acronym is a member of IIA Sweden, which is a part of the international organisation The Institute of Internal Auditors, IIA.

 

 

 

 Training

Stay ahead – are your staff up to date with current legal requirements, trends and methods?

Staff training is one of the most efficient mitigating actions when it comes to combating financial crime. The landscape of financial crime is however always changing and in order to stay ahead, training needs to happen regularly.

We offer a broad variation of trainings with focus on the “how”. How to detect, deter and handle suspicious actions, behaviours and transactions. How to implement sufficient controls and to validate your mitigating actions.

  • AML/CTF general awareness
  • Risk Assessment trainings (Fraud/AML/CTF)
  • Specific training for Board of Directors and Senior Management
  • AML/Fraud Surveillance (monitoring) training
  • AML/CTF for Internal Auditors

We adapt our training methodology to make sure it fits your business and purpose. Trainings can be held at your location or at any venue. We also offer online live training on request.

Investigation

Find the facts – are you exposed to external or internal fraud, bribery or corruption?

Fraud is any intentional act or omission designed to deceive others, resulting in the victim suffering a loss and/or the perpetrator achieving a personal or financial gain. Fraud and corruption often result in financial loss, it impairs your company’s brand and reputation, it effects your customers’, suppliers’ and stakeholders’ relationships. It also diminishes trust.

And, it’s a fact – fraud and corruption is an ongoing risk for most organisations, no matter industry. The deterrence of fraud is a process of eliminating factors that may cause fraud to occur. But, what do you do when the preventive measures fail, or the monitoring process detects a fraudster or a fraudulent behaviour?

Acronym offer a wide range of investigative services:

  • We support you and assists in investigating alleged or suspected fraud
  • We assist with establishing truths, evaluate implications and to identify appropriate remedial actions
  • We apply up to date methodology and best practice when detecting and securing information and evidence
  • We apply data analytics
