Corporate Governance:  Challenges and Opportunities

The core of every internal control system is the integrity of its people, processes, and technologies.  In the wake of today’s corporate scandals, bankruptcies, media-frenzied bailouts, and the financial market meltdown, light is once again being shed on the criticality of system risk and control.  However, more scrutiny is being placed on the people who are responsible for governing and managing these systems.

Because people are the most vital part of any system environment, it is imperative to have the right people, in the right place, performing the right activities - while doing the “right” thing.  In this session you will learn how internal audit can seize the opportunity and play a very key and vital role in the governance reform that lies on the horizon. 

Program Learning Objectives, include:

  • Gain insight on how to drive initiatives for transparency, accountability, and risk oversight that support the Directors and Officers fiduciary duties.
  • Gain insight into how to audit ethics and business conduct and develop an early warning system to detect and respond to "yellow flags."
  • Gain insight to learn methods to quickly identify non-compliance, deficiencies, weaknesses, mismanagement, fraud, and corruption.
