Identify and mitigate risk across Workday with Kainos

Ensure your Workday system is safe, compliant, and ready for internal and external audits, wherever your business is based

Ensuring sensitive personal or financial data is appropriately secured has never been more important in this quickly evolving digital world. Every day, the reputational, operational, and legal consequences for organisations that lack robust controls become ever greater.

That’s why your Workday configuration—the heart of your back-office—needs to be secure to safeguard business-critical information, as well as facilitate compliance with ever-stricter regulatory legislation.

Our Workday auditing and compliance experts can help you prepare, evidence, and optimise Workday when it’s time for internal and external audits, freeing up both staff and SMEs to focus on what they do best while mitigating the risk of fraud or inappropriate activity.



Get set-up for whole-system security

Workday offers organisations the power to transform back-office operations into seamless user experiences. But a platform of this scale and complexity houses hundreds of business processes, transactions, permissions, and user profiles that all present potential risk exposure points.

Our industry-leading certified Workday consultants and Auditors work globally to help ensure that your management and configuration of Workday aligns with international, national or regional control frameworks. Whether you’re thinking about implementing Workday or approaching the next step on your roadmap, it’s essential that whatever you do is secure, optimised, and compliant.

Change is inevitable, so stay in control

Regardless of your deployment maturity, your Workday configuration will require regulatory, SOX or equivalent controls alignment, and as your business complexity grows, your needs can change, and regulations can expand. Maintaining compliance is as important as starting out on the right path.

Our Workday auditing and compliance experts are on-hand to identify any gaps in security and offer solutions as regulatory governance increases, your organisation adds new functionality or integrations, or if Workday’s bi-annual updates impact the processes and controls you have in place within your tenant.


Proactively combat fraud with Workday

As Workday contains dense layers of approvals and permissions to manage, it can be difficult to identify when and how employee access to sensitive business processes or transactional information becomes toxic.

We can help you to gain in-depth insights to ensure that Segregation of Duties conflicts are managed, preventing the opportunity for fraudulent activity, ultimately keeping your financial and reputational standing as safe as possible.
