About FDC Associates
FDC Associates is a technology audit firm that offers complete solutions for your IT-related Corporate Governance Risk and Compliance (IT GRC) needs. Founded by former "Big-4" professionals who recognized the need for a firm that specializes in technology audit at competitive prices, FDC Associates has grown rapidly. We serve clients across the continental United States from our offices in South Florida, Washington DC and San Francisco.

Our founder, Frederick D. Cox, has been a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) since 1986, and has been engaged in the IT field since 1978. The Associates with the firm are a collection of outstanding people Fred met during the course of his technology auditing career, whom he asked to join the firm. "Our professional staff of Certified Information Systems Auditors, (CISA), Certified Information System Security Professionals, (CISSP), Certified Public Accountants (CPA), Certified Fraud Examiners (CFE) has a wealth of experience and judgment that only comes from practicing the information security profession over time," noted Cox.

Over the years we have performed technology and security audits in a variety of environments, from OS390 Mainframes to single domain networks. We have worked in ERP environments such as SAP and PeopleSoft, using Oracle and SQL back-ends as well as JD Edwards, Great Plains and MS Dynamics installations. "Security assignment and management procedures in AS 400, Unix, Linux, Novell and MCP Clear Path Operating Systems are not a mystery to us; they are our bread and butter," says Fred.

Client Engagements
We specialize in banking, finance and securities IT auditing and IT security but possess extensive experience in these areas across a wide range of industries. Our client engagements typically fall into two categories: (1) those firms that hire FDC Associates on a "turn key" basis, where we plan, staff and execute your security and technology audit needs, and (2) those where we direct the activities of your employees that work alongside our professionals as partners on the project. Either way, you are able to leverage our years of experience and obtain a satisfactory or better rating from regulators the first time, and obtain assurance that your audit scope is on target.

We serve our clients with honesty, integrity and hard work to earn the privilege to be your partner for IT Audit and Governance Solutions. We pride ourselves on relationships that produce results. In this way, our work reflects who we are and what we value. We invite you to get to know us.
