To meet the demands of today’s fast pace of business, many organizations are turning to continuous assurance and auditing techniques. To assist internal auditors in supporting these efforts, The IIA is releasing a practice advisory on continuous assurance as a companion piece to the second edition of GTAG 3: Continuous Auditing.
Together these publications provide insight into how to perform control and risk assessments more frequently and the critical role that information technology plays in achieving valid and useable results.
This webinar will explore the relationship between these two activities and the role that internal auditors can play in implementing these strategies. The program will also focus on technology-enabled aspects of continuous assurance and auditing, such as:
  • A definition of related terms and techniques including continuous auditing, ongoing control assessment, ongoing risk assessment, continuous monitoring, and assurance.
  • Areas where continuous auditing can be applied by the internal audit activity.
  • Challenges and opportunities related to continuous auditing.
  • The implications for internal auditing, the CAE, and management.
  • The role of continuous auditing in relation to continuous monitoring.
