Danielle is most passionate about her work in assisting businesses in developing segregating of duties with their existing resources. Most small and medium sized business don’t have the personnel, IT, or monetary resources to set up traditional segregation of duties. Danielle finds the puzzle of creating alternative methods to create segregation of duties for fraud and error prevention extremely rewarding and interesting.
