Creating a Top-Down, Risk-Based Audit Plan
March 12, 2013
1:00–2:00 p.m. ET
In a profession traditionally strapped for resources and under siege with ever-emerging risks, auditors can no longer afford to audit via a shotgun approach. Auditors must adopt an approach that utilizes their resources to focus on critical areas and risks pertaining to the business.
The best practice of top-down, risk-based auditing helps auditors and organizations realize greater value from their audits by focusing on the major strategic and operational risks that can impact an organization as well as improving processes in a sustainable manner.
During this webinar, attendees will learn how to:
- Use business drivers to identify and analyze key risks.
- Design and implement mitigating controls.
- Evaluate the operating effectiveness of internal controls.
- Effectively sustain and improve the audit process.
