How We Can Help You

D-Risk differentiates itself from its peers by concentrating on how your organisation works and will, as much as possible, integrate your organisations culture and processes and controls. Where this is can be improved we will assist the organisation in redesigning its processes and controls and integrate them into a new bespoke controls and reporting environment.

D-Risk accomplishes this through a combination of staff consultation and expertise in the environment in which you work, an analysis of your end to end processes, and if necessary recommendations of an appropriate platform/software based solution.

If required D-Risk can also provide project management and change management expertise in order to fully implement the solution within your organisations culture using combinations of formal and informal project management techniques.

D-Risk contractors have never failed to deliver a project where D-Risk or a D-Risk consultant has had the primary responsibility for delivery, or been engaged to assist in the delivery of a project, including previously failed projects. For example, D-Risk ran the first Banking Crisis Exercise in Australia for the Council of Financial Regulators with Neal Hornsby as Project Leader.

Our thought leadership in risk management and compliance consulting along with software solutions has seen us work with some the largest financial institutions in Australia as well as companies in Asia.

We work with our clients developing trust at the business and management level to deliver real compliance value.

If required we are happy to assume the regulatory liaison and negotiate with the regulators as well as assisting in the design the scope and project management of regulator requirements or negotiate and manage an enforceable undertaking if required.

Our approach is to work alongside your organisation and its people, and in consultation with the stakeholders, deliver optimum process innovation on time, while managing the risks associated with the project.

Add to this the ability to draw on legal expertise to ensure that responses to business and other pressures fit compliance and accountability imperatives and you have the product mix that makes D-Risk a trusted resource to our many longstanding clients.
