Join us on Tuesday, September 18th for an all-day session on IT General Controls. Afterwards, enjoy a cocktail at a happy hour sponsored by EisnerAmper.

All auditors, either financial, operational or IT come into contact with IT processes and outputs. Understanding how this impacts the area being auditing is crucial to performing a comprehensive and valuable engagement. For the new auditor this training will introduce you to IT risk in the audit universe, testing IT General Controls and Application controls. For the seasoned auditor, this session is a perfect to get “back to basics” and remember some of things they may have “forgotten”. After the general audit and IT overviews are completed, the training will shift to Information Technology and look at the various control models, the need for controls and risk management.

In addition, we will discuss how numerous companies are focusing their reviews on the latest in technology, cloud computing, cybersecurity, etc. The last section will be devoted to the details for the general control framework needed in any IT Organization and discuss 12 IT General controls. Each control section will describe the need for the control, how it should be developed and what the auditor should look for during any involvement in those areas.

Join us on Tuesday, October 2nd for a one-day session with Danny Goldberg, Internationally-Recognized Speaker on Communication, Internal Audit & Risk, as we discuss two current hot topics: assessing corporate culture and practical ethics.

Assessing Corporate Culture
The IIA has recently highlighted corporate culture as a key area that should be addressed by Internal Audit. The long list of recent corporate scandals reinforces the need for executives to keep an eye on organizational culture. At its finest, culture helps an organization retain employees and motivates them to do their best and most productive work. This session focuses on ways to assess/audit corporate culture and the pitfalls associated with an area that is very subjective.

Practical Ethics
Internal auditors are faced with complex decisions daily without realizing some are ethical dilemmas. This session will provide an opportunity to study these issues at the workplace in greater depth. The discussion will include a basic understanding of our ethical obligations as internal auditors, as well as a framework for analyzing and managing complex ethical dilemmas that may arise in practice.

Join us on Monday, November 19th for our annual fall conference at a new location, the Marriott Downtown Philadelphia. The theme of this conference will be "Back to the Basics in Times of Innovation."

Internal Audit principles and concepts are constantly evolving. They evolve due to corporate environments changing with technology, corporate culture, and regulatory compliance. However, with constant change, Internal Audit is still relied upon to provide risk-based assurance to stakeholders and adhere to audit standards and code of ethics. During our Fall Conference we will explore how our core principles still endure with constant change in our environments.

Our program will kick off with our opening keynote speaker, Naohiro Mouri, IIA Global Chairman & Chief Auditor at AIG on “Emphasize the Basics. Elevate the Standards.” Then throughout the day attendees will join breakout sessions within the following five tracks: Internal Audit/Soft Skills, Governance/Risk/Compliance, Fraud/Forensics, Information Technology and CAE (by invitation only). Then we'll bring it all together for our closing keynote presentation from Ariane de Bonvoisin, Change Expert, Author and Speaker on “The 9 Principles of Change: How to Navigate Change and Transition Successfully”.
