High Technology and Manufacturing

FDC Associates can help you assess internal controls relating to any part of your IT corporate governance infrastructure. The skills and capabilities of our professionals include internal IT audit, information security, IT consulting and network testing. Our experienced Certified Information Systems Auditors (CISA), Certified Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSP), Certified Fraud Examiners (CFE) and Certified Microsoft Professionals (CMP) have worked in IT audit roles for over 20 years.

The accuracy of your inventories for raw materials, work in process and finished stock are a direct result of the strength of your internal controls. As are your abilities to accurately recognize revenue and translate this activity into your financial statements, while providing assurances that the likelihood of fraud is low. We are expert at the technology testing you need to provide robust assurances that your technology controls - from network security to firewall functionality - are performing as you expect.

Effectively managing sensitive customer data requires a proactive strategy to keep your network protected from both internal and external threats. Specific requirements include:
Public companies (and by extension many suppliers to public companies) must conform to Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 (SOX 404) for assessment of internal controls.

ISO 27001 is the formal standard against which organizations may seek independent certification of their Information Security Management Systems (meaning their frameworks to design, implement, manage, maintain and enforce information security processes and controls systematically and consistently throughout the organizations). It is applicable to all types of organizations, but holds particular interest for multi-national corporations and their supplier networks.
