Because of a scarcity of resources and lack of segregation of duties, small audit functions usually face various challenges and risks not typical for larger offices. This presentation will examine;

How to be compliant if it is just a one player game?
How to co-operate with other units for the common benefit but not to violate independence and confidentiality rules?
How small audit shops can use their size as an advantage and be at least as successful as their larger peers?
 
During this webinar you will learn some strategies and tools available to small audit departments to overcome the challenges and exceed the expectations of the board and senior management, fulfill their mandate, and maintain the department’s continuity.

An analytical model is a mathematical equation that takes in data and produces a calculation such as a score, ranking, classification, or prediction. It is a very specific set of instructions for analyzing data to deliver a particular kind of result — behavior, decision, action, or cause — to support a business process.

Today's organizations have billions of dollars riding on the accuracy and performance integrity of analytical models. With model performance becoming a strategic enabler and a potential source of liability, organizations need to manage the risks associated with analytics.

To manage these risks effectively and move beyond simple financial model or spreadsheet auditing, organizations need a system of controls around analytic model development. These analytics controls provide checks and balances around model selection, validation, implementation, and maintenance.

Although many auditors may be unfamiliar with analytical models, machine learning, and AI, the fundamentals of internal auditing remain the same. As with all new technologies and processes that organizations have embraced, internal auditors have a responsibility to learn how analytic models can be useful in their work and adapt their methods to serve their stakeholders.
