Credit Institutions

Internal audit

PBK regularly supports financial institutions of all types in the field of internal auditing. We perform the IT audit in more than 70 credit institutions. In case of orders for general audit, regulatory issues (e.g. MaRisk, money laundering, disclosure and reporting) are mostly subject of the audit. We support the credit institutions often in the processing of findings of a special auditor in accordance with § 44 para. 1 sentence 2 KWG. We also review the adequacy of the organisation.

IT systems regularly prove to be a very risky audit area for internal auditing of credit institutions. If the structure of its own in-house IT audit knowledge is too complex, internal audit is usually sourced out. Based on our experiences, as PBK we are often the preferred contact partners in this case. Since we regularly perform IT-audit in over 70 institutions in cooperation with the IT specialists of our sister company GDB Gesellschaft für Datensicherheit und IT-Beratung mbH.

As providers of internal audit we can show a certain degree of specialisation in the field of of combating money-laundering and fraud: We assume this special task of internal audit in various foreign banks.

Of course, we also offer to fully assume the duties of the general audit at a credit institution. We pursue a risk-oriented audit approach. In the form of meaningful audit reports, we provide information about each audit and create the corresponding quarterly and annual reports. In this context, we report both to the executive board and the monitoring body.
