Session Overview

Unquestionably, technology – much of which we can only imagine today – play a pivotal role in our lives. New technologies inevitably bring new opportunities and new challenges. It’s a whole makeover in the way we work, live and relate to one another, affecting entire industries and economies, and even challenging our notion of what it means to be human, ethical internal auditors.  When faced with a challenging technological-ethical dilemma, internal auditors are expected to respond proactively and demonstrate ethical leadership on the use of technology which may involve issues of privacy, security, consent, recognizing potential impact of technology, both positive and negative to begin with.

With a boost in numerous technological enhancements largely impacting our ethical landscape as internal audit professionals, how can we work meticulously towards ensuring that our code of the past not only catches up but exceeds the technological risks of the future?

This session will:

· Summarize mandatory components of IIA Code of Ethics

· Provide a framework that can be used to assess advanced ethical dilemmas

· Highlight, using modern examples, how to apply an modern day ethics experienced by internal audit professionals

This session meets the new requirement for an IIA-certified individual to complete a minimum of 2 CPE credit hours. The requirement applies to all IIA certifications and qualifications, including CIA, CRMA, CCSA, CGAP, CFSA, CPEA, CPSA, and QIAL.
