Businesses are becoming more complex. The regulators are demanding on compliance and the markets are volatile. In this backdrop there is a ever increasing challenge on the senior management to navigate their team and lead them to achieve corporate objectives. Large conglomerates face challenges arising in diversified businesses. The need for an external view or a validation of view on key risks confronting the performance of corporates is felt by both the management as well as the boards of the companies.

Technology is becoming equally if not more complex and disruptions are now becoming more regular than before. Cyber security may threaten the very existence of an entity. Work from home has its own set of challenges impacting process and controls. A review of the efficacy of the control and mitigation mechanism, particularly from an independent set of professionals is felt by the businesses more often than earlier.
