About Us

We believe protecting against fraud, waste and abuse requires the same level of diligence applied to digital assets. Anything less incurs significant financial and reputational risk. ​

We also recognize that the cost of implementing this level of diligence has been prohibitive for most organizations. 

That's why we founded CTRLmatters.  

By combining decades of financial operations analytics with the latest in data sciences, we’ve developed a robust service platform that enables any enterprise to maximize operational protection while significantly decreasing the associated costs.

CTRLmatters believes EVERY enterprise needs three lines of defense.
