North Denver,  

This is the first breakfast meeting of the chapter year in North Denver, and we are excited to bring you a hot topic at a new location. Please note, the topic and speaker for this meeting are the same as the joint meeting with ISACA on October 25th. 

Michael will be with us in person in Longmont to lead us into the future by sharing with us new technologies and methods for making internal audit relevant. 

We look forward to seeing you in Longmont! 

Topics and Learning Objectives:

Increasingly, internal audit functions are harnessing automation and cognitive technologies to enhance efficiency and effectiveness.  In addition, as businesses progress their use of automation, new and unexpected risks must be addressed.  We will discuss:

  • Internal audit use cases of disruptive technologies such as analytics, robotic process automation, and cognitive intelligence.
  • Potential applications of automation within the internal audit life cycle, including a methodology for identifying use cases and considerations for a target operating model.
  • Auditing automation risks, including identifying both current and future risks, and considerations for addressing them. 
 Participants will learn how internal audit can enhance its ability to assure, advise, and anticipate risks associated with disruptive technologies.
