In a recent Protiviti survey of C-level Executives and Board members, rapid speed of disruptive innovations, new technologies and resistance to change operations were noted as the top risks facing organizations today. As organizations plan for and undertake transformational initiatives and evaluate and adopt new technologies, such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Internal Audit must serve a key role in helping ensure the right balance between innovation and pace of change, and governance and control.

During this discussion, we will cover the following topics:
  • What is Robotic Process Automation and how does it work? What benefits & risks does RPA present to the organization?
  • How IA can partner with the business during an RPA implementation to ensure key risks are identified & mitigated, and the potential impact to the current control environment is considered
  • How IA can help the business identify and assess areas well suited for automation
  • How do IA functions develop the necessary skills and capabilities in these emerging areas
  • How IA can take advantage of RPA capabilities to enhance the delivery of their services

Most organizations are considering the use of new emerging technologies such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) to drive consistency and efficiencies within their business processes as well as a mechanism to drive cost savings. The introduction to these new technologies brings many opportunities, but also brings many unknowns and potential risks to the organization that historically may not have been a concern.During this discussion, we will cover the following topics:
  • What is RPA and why should IA care about it
  • What are the top risk associated with the implementation of RPA
  • Why audit RPA and what are the suggested focus areas of audit
  • How IA can take advantage of RPA capabilities to enhance the delivery of their services (overview of potential use cases, assessment approach, and demo of control testing automation)

This presentation qualifies for 1(one) non-NASBA CPE

Each member receives two drink tickets and deliciously filling hors d'oeuvres will be available beginning at 4:15 pm. Registration will include access to the ASI museum.
