When the word ‘audit’ or ‘auditor’ is used in a sentence there is often an immediate cringing effect that happens in our minds. People have learned to fear the audit and as such, auditors. We have found this to be true in our line of business; we are constantly being categorized as auditors. People immediately get nervous when we starting asking questions for fear that the next answer will have them fired. THIS IS NOT THE CASE!
It has always been an on-going fight to help people understand that we are more consultants than auditors. Our goal is NOT to judge or get people in trouble, but to improve policies and procedures for the security of the employees, banks, and ultimately, their customers. So like we tell all of our clients, “We’re the good guys here. We’re here to help.“
