What is Forensic Accounting?
According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’ Manual, forensic accounting is “the use of professional accounting skills in matters involving potential or actual civil or criminal litigation.” It does not necessarily have to begin with an element of fraud. However, it may often result in finding fraud.

Why a Fraud Risk Assessment?
As a business owner, you have limited resources, and you trust your employees. A typical question that we hear is: "I know that I am working hard, but I don't see it on my bank statements. Can you help?"
The Value of Fraud Risk Assessment
According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners' 2018 Report to the Nations, there is a 38% reduction in median loss and a 50% reduction in duration when a formal fraud risk assessment is in place.

Why Have Cybersecurity Policies & Procedures?
Hackers are targeting small professional firms with the knowledge that your business has valuable information, such as Personal Identifiable Information in tax returns, confidential agreements, etc., that they can sell for a profit on the dark web.
What are Cybersecurity Policies & Procedures?
A well-documented Cybersecurity Policies & Procedures (CP&P) identifies the critical data that your business is collecting, processing, and storing. Through this documentation, we help you identify risks and exposures that you may not have known before.
The Value of Cybersecurity Policies & Procedures
The ultimate goal of a well-written CP&P is to identify security gaps, reduce risk, and devise an Incident Response Plan (IRP). It may also help you reduce the premium of a Cybersecurity Insurance Policy.
