Digital risk & compliance

Advance your business strategy at pace by gaining insight into the interconnected risks that threaten your enterprise — enabling you to see ahead and mitigate dangers.

Managing risk for competitive advantage

Today’s risks are complex and interconnected, with new risks emerging rapidly. Volatility is increasing, along with regulatory pressure. We have seen major disruptions to business cycles over the last three decades, including the dot-com crash, the global financial crisis and the recent Covid-19 pandemic. Volatility seems likely to increase, along with threats from known and unknown places. Regulation is unlikely to become less complex or less demanding. In this environment, every organization needs to improve its risk management capabilities.

We work with Chief Finance Officers, Chief Risk Officers and other senior risk and compliance executives to help them manage their risk agenda across five key areas: Cyber Risk, Operational Risk & Resilience, Fraud & Financial Crime, Regulatory & Compliance and Financial Risk.

Accenture's 2022 compliance risk study highlights ways compliance officers can navigate through the perfect storm.
