 Auditing at the Speed of Risk – Helping Organizations During Uncertainty and Change

Does your Internal Audit Function audit at the speed of risk? How can you help your organization during times of uncertainty and change?
The ongoing COVID-19 situation presents a substantial challenge for business, governments and the community. We are likely to see an impact over many months on many business stakeholders including employees, customers, suppliers and other stakeholders such as regulators.
For most organizations, Internal Audit plans under a Business as Usual (BAU) scenario. Today internal auditors need to demonstrate our agility and respond accordingly, recognizing that the response will be different for each organization.
In this interactive session, we will provide a view on how Internal Audit can stand with the business to provide the support it needs to deliver its services in a safe, secure and trusted way, leveraging the concepts of agile auditing and dynamic audit planning.
