Vienna, 31 August 2022 – With the merger of RBS Responsible Business Solutions and its sister company RE-Structure, the consulting experts combine the business areas of compliance, data security and management services and business consulting.
An active compliance management system that reflects national and international regulations is not only a challenge when it comes to setting it up, but above all when it comes to running it. As a subsidiary of the international law firm Wolf Theiss, RBS has direct access to a large network of legal experts who can translate legal requirements into concrete compliance practice.
“We see three essential segments of our compliance portfolio: the offer to provide an external data protection officer, the certification of IT systems, and processes based on the certification with the European Privacy Seal (EuroPriSe). The third building block is the provision and operation of a straightforward and highly secure whistleblowing solution.”
“RBS relies on the SaaS tool SecuReveal™ to enable companies that are affected by possible misconduct to investigate allegations early and in a structured manner and to take appropriate measures before they cause even greater damage,” notes Managing Director Helmut Waitzer.
Management and Director Services, which have been successfully offered in RE-Structure for many years, are included in the service portfolio as a new core competence area. Clients who do not yet have a resident director in Austria, who are new to the Austrian market or who are restructuring, can access a package of services ranging from the establishment of companies, domiciliation services, the provision of external directors to the operational organisation of accounting or personnel management.
“The comprehensive care and support of our clients in such situations is part of our DNA and our corporate philosophy; we offer full operational management services and a network of experienced professionals”, says Managing Director Gernot Rauter.
“As a subsidiary of an international law firm, we can quickly access legal resources, have international network partners such as Intertrust in the Netherlands, and work together with first-class Austrian service providers such as the tax and accounting firm HHP in Vienna. New mandates can thus be quickly supported with tailor-made offers in every phase of entrepreneurial life“, Rauter emphasises the synergies between the different fields of competence.
