Session Overview

Increasing Regulatory Requirements Bring Increased Risk

Regulatory risk continues to be a prominent agenda item on bank boards, as well as on risk and audit committee agendas. With regulatory requirements becoming increasingly stringent and complex, and with Basel IV discussions starting to emerge even before Basel III is fully implemented, internal audit has a key role to play as part of the “third line of defence”, in helping the organization manage and mitigate regulatory risk.

This session will examine:

  • The current Canadian bank regulatory landscape in the context of Basel 3 through OSFI’s 2013 Capital Adequacy Requirements, effective 2013;
  • Emerging regulatory developments; and
  • Key need-to-know facts for bank internal auditors to ensure a risk-based audit approach and plan.
