We help our organizations accomplish their objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes.

Happy December, everyone! I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving celebration with food, family, and fun. The December holidays have arrived, and I hope your celebrations are merry and bright!
Last month we heard a fantastic presentation by Andy Lemon, AML Manager with Rush Street Interactive. He shared his insights into online gaming operations, internal controls to prevent money laundering, and emerging trends in financial crime.
This month we are happy to host Steve Haffner, magician and mentalist with experience as an IT professional, business analyst, and executive. Steve will be helping us elevate our decision-making during times of stressful disruption and change.
