In a world where enterprises face near-constant cybersecurity threats that are only growing in scope and severity, one alliance plans to leverage industry-leading cybersecurity and consulting capabilities to help clients establish strong governance, risk, and compliance management strategies to face dangers both new and unknown.
Announced on September 24th, the alliance between EY and Archer seeks to assist organizations in developing and enhancing risk management and cybersecurity strategies. Ernst & Young (EY) is a Big Four accounting firm providing consulting, cybersecurity, digital transformation, and financial services to enterprises all over the world. RSA’s Archer is a market leader in cybersecurity and risk management solutions, as well as automation, cloud security, and compliance services.
By leveraging EY’s consulting capabilities and Archer’s GRC and integrated risk management services, businesses can receive the best of both worlds while navigating risk and compliance transformations. The partnership hopes to help businesses address a wide range of issues, including regulatory risk, risk-informed decision making, limited visibility of risk, and compliance to stakeholders.
Archer CEO Bill Diaz said, “The combination of the Archer suite and EY US leading risk management and cybersecurity consulting experience provides clients with skills and technology to establish a foundational GRC strategy that can evolve into integrated risk management with the needs of the business. Organizations are looking to better understand their operational risks as they accelerate their business transformation journeys, and together, Archer and EY US can help organizations fulfill this need.”
With enterprises continuing to transform operational/IT systems and processes in the face of an ever-changing business landscape, the need for guidance and well-executed strategic plans has never been greater. Businesses seeking to upgrade their approaches to these new challenges with a more modern, agile way of doing business can surely expect great results from this new alliance.
