We are excited to be hosting Pam Hrubey, managing director in the Risk Business Unit at Crowe Horwath. Pam will be speaking on key topics related to tightening the link between ethics within compliance programs and internal controls. A few key questioned that will be answered include:
  • What is an ethics and compliance program, and why is a connection between E&C and internal audit key?
  • How can ethics and compliance leaders and internal auditors collaborate for the organization’s benefit while maintaining independence?
  • What key attributes are indicators or effective collaboration?
