Internal Audit's Role in Digital Labor
CPE credit(s): 2
As organizations consider the use of digital labor- and cognitive-based automation there are a variety of issues, opportunities and associated risks for internal audit to consider as they assess the first and second lines' use of automation as well as internal audit's own use of automation relating to risk assessment, audit scoping, testing and reporting activities.  This session is intended to provide participants with an overview of the levels of automation; the opportunities for the use of automation across the first, second and third lines of defense; an example process to identify and prioritize potential internal audit use cases for automation; an example maturity roadmap; and, considerations for internal audit in assessing the risks, controls and governance around automation programs and individual automation applications across the three lines of defense.
