The Importance of Controls During Mergers and Acquisitions: A Risk Roundtable Discussion

Webcast overview

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) have become part of an organization’s standardized business operations and will continue to act as an integral part of its overall growth strategy. While M&A can be a powerful mechanism for strategic growth, security and compliance challenges may arise. With proper care, however, these risks can be managed effectively.

Join the KPMG Risk Assurance group for a roundtable discussion, featuring professionals from our Internal Audit service network, as we explore M&A as an effective growth strategy. We’ll also discuss the associated risks of M&A and the checklist of control activities that organizations can enact today to reduce its overall risk exposure while also reducing the overall cost of compliance.

Topics:

  • Internal audit's role during M&A
  • Defining risk management ownership
  • Key activities to mitigate integration risks
