Risk Insights

Risk Insights specialises in using data for assurance projects. We help teams boost their data capability to improve efficiency, effectiveness, and overall performance.

We’re best known for our specialised knowledge in using data for internal audit and performance audit. We’re among a very small pool of truly independent performance auditors — never auditing and advising on the same matters to ensure an unbiased outcome.

We deliver a uniquely personalised, tailored approach. Unlike traditional consulting firms, you’ll always have a senior leader on your project and know exactly who you’re dealing with, from start to finish.


With over four decades of combined experience, our consultants have worked with dozens of audit teams on hundreds of audits, across several countries. We’ve worked with top tier professional services firms and several statutory bodies, delivering value to public sector entities and socially responsible businesses.

If you’re interested in working together, contact us to set up a meeting. We only take on work if we’re confident that we can deliver, so if we’re not the right team for you, we’ll be upfront about that and try to help you find someone who is.
Our approach

Using Data for Assurance

Data is an exciting area for auditors and assurance leaders. In the last decade (and especially within the last few years), we’ve seen the volume of available data skyrocket — along with the technology, hardware, and software to exploit its potential. But very few audit teams are making the most of the data (and insights) now available to them.

Using data in your audits can help you:
  • Increase confidence in your findings
  • More easily fix issues and improve performance
  • Improve economy, make the most of your budget, and justify your spend
  • Audit more efficiently
  • Improve stakeholder satisfaction

Using data in your audits could be the competitive advantage you’re looking for.

But most audit teams aren’t equipped to properly implement data in their audits, which is why so few auditors get it right. Perhaps you lack the capacity, time, specialised training, or processes to take on a data-focused internal audit. Or perhaps you’re overwhelmed by the complexity, hype, and jargon in this space.

We can help you successfully execute a data-focused audit.

Data specialty is our key point of difference. When you work with us, you get deep data expertise and tools that enable you to enjoy real insights, make the most of the data, and get better results for your stakeholders. Whether you need to upskill your team, quickly boost your capacity, or confidently implement new processes, we can help.
