As a Director in Frazier & Deeter’s Process, Risk & Governance Practice, Austin Miller is responsible for managing SOC readiness, SOC 1 and SOC 2 engagements and various other internal controls consulting engagements, including HITRUST, internal audit and PCI.
Austin works with a wide range of industry groups at FD, including healthcare, insurance, financial services, manufacturing & distribution, technology, professional services and eCommerce. Within these industry groups, he primarily works with public sector, higher education and Software as a Service (SaaS) clients. Utilizing a collaborative, technology-focused approach to internal controls testing, Austin prioritizes value-adding over box-checking. Through automation and other efficiencies, validating compliance requirements is now only a small part of the modern internal controls assessment process. This innovative approach allows internal control owners to focus on the root cause of recurring issues, the remediation and monitoring of these issues, and the identification of cost savings opportunities, vendor management problems, and other process inefficiencies.
Before joining the firm, Austin served as a senior manager at Elliot Davis LLC where he managed internal audits, IT controls (including SOC and HITRUST) and ERM consulting engagements for various SEC registrants, government entities, energy sector, financial institutions, retailers, software startups and data centers throughout the U.S.
