Synergy’s scalable methodology offers comprehensive enterprise-level, consolidated information technology (IT) audits or single audits of specific functions and risk areas. Every bank has budget constraints and priorities they must weigh and balance, and we will work with you and your technology team to identify solutions and industry best practices that fit your unique needs.

We are flexible in the way we operate and communicate, particularly with integrating current practices and with providing value to your board and audit committee. We also offer training for your team to strengthen your internal skillset.

What differentiates Synergy’s approach? We believe the value internal auditors bring to your risk management team shouldn’t just come from answering the questions you ask, but also through surfacing the questions you may not be thinking about yet. At Synergy, we view internal audit as more than just compliance—it’s also an opportunity to become better at what you do.

This is why we won’t come to you with predetermined answers. Our advisors proactively get to know your business first, and then strive to help expand your thought process to make sure the right ‘stuff’ is on your radar. Our banking industry experts will help you set a strategy for the future and craft the right responses for your business.
