Hello, I am Philip Nordfalk

I am an experienced management consultant with a demonstrated history of work within Governance, Risk, Control and Compliance areas. I'm skilled in Enterprise Risk Management, Business Processes, Internal Controls, Information Security and Compliance Management. Strong consulting professional with a Bachelor of Commerce (HD) focused in Economics and Business Administration from Copenhagen Business School as well as several certifications in information security and risk management.

Specialties includes advisory services and implementation support related to Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) as well as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As such, I have good experience in identifying and understanding relevant legislation and standards and help to get this implemented in practice.

In addition, I have acted as a project manager on many projects, and I’m not afraid of doing “hands-on” detailed work if this is required on an engagement.

I do have good experience in gaining an overall understanding of the business and the environment in which it operates in order to “right-size” efforts that I advise on and assist the customer with. I have helped many companies from overall design of concepts through architecting more detailed procedures and work instructions and then helped the company implement and use these in their day-to-day work.
