Risk Management

Take the risk out of your operations.

Some of the biggest concerns and risks you face fall outside the realm of day-to-day business. Whether it’s protecting your business against embezzlement and fraud, documenting claims for insurance or litigation, or safeguarding the integrity of your data, IT systems and operations, HORNE has effective solutions to address risks unique to businesses with high-transaction volumes, largely cash receipts and high employee turnover.

Fraud & Litigation Support

Employee theft. Vendor overcharges. Contract violations. Disputes with your franchisor. Events occur that result in the potential need for litigation. We can help you assess the financial impact and document your losses in a clear and concise manner, as well as help you put controls in place to prevent future events from occurring.

Should a personal or civil matter arise that puts your assets at risk, HORNE Franchise can help you avoid excessive judgments or losses by providing a true representation of your holdings.

Cybersecurity Breach Readiness

An offense-oriented approach can help ensure you are prepared should an attack occur.

Cybersecurity

Large financial institutions or online e-tailers aren’t the businesses that need to be concerned with cybersecurity. As a franchise owner, you have access to employees’ personal and health information. Most of your banking, bookkeeping, ordering and communication is done electronically. You are connected with vendor and corporate systems and applications, and you probably have websites and social media accounts that customers interact with every day.

Our cybersecurity specialists can perform a thorough analysis of current systems to identify areas that are vulnerable to hackers or malware. Once we’ve addressed any weak spots, we can show you how to take an offense-oriented approach that ensures that you are prepared should an attack occur.
