2023 Internal Audit Webcast Series: Internal Audit of the Future
The Internal Audit profession is going through a period of change, coupled with increased expectations on our role to both protect and create value. Some are being fast-tracked as a result of the global pandemic and rapid advances in technology. Some are being driven by regulatory change, and others by demands of wider stakeholders as transformation, climate change, corporate responsibility and transparent governance are all shaping our worlds.
2023 Internal Audit Webcast Series: Robotic Process Automation: Risk and Audit Considerations
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is technology that allows companies to build, deploy and manage software robots that emulate human actions interacting with digital systems and software. The planning phase of an RPA program is the perfect opportunity for Internal Audit teams to identify risks and make sure the right controls are in place, thereby setting programs up for success from the start.
2023 Internal Audit Webcast Series: Best Practices for Internal Audit Related to SOC Reporting
System and Organization Controls (SOC) audits are an independent assessment of the risks associated with using service organizations and other third parties. They are essential to regulatory oversight, vendor management programs, internal governance, and management. Our team will discuss what SOC reports mean for internal audit teams as well as best practices to ensure obligations related to SOC reporting are met.
Technical writing is a balancing act and one that is critical in the Internal Audit profession. Documents must be precise enough to cover subject matter yet general enough to apply to numerous projects. Join us for this skills development training as a technical writing professional shares steps that need to be taken to create high-quality technical documents, including the creation of document plans and planning organizational meetings with stakeholders and reviewers.
