It provides independent assurance that an organization’s risk management, governance and internal control processes are operating effectively. Therefore it is imperative that organizations have a strong internal audit department that can providing an effective audit function. This webinar provides insights as to how you can have strong foundation for your internal audit department. It will also deliver key aspects for maintaining a sharp audit function.

Session1: Foundations of a Strong Internal Audit Department

This CPE webinar will provide insight on the realities of internal audit management roles, and the elements needed to build a strong internal audit department to provide the most value for your company.

The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) has done a tremendous job raising the profile of the auditing profession. As auditors, we strive to abide by the standards and guidelines. But have you ever asked management within your company if they knew such standards existed? Do they truly understand the concepts of risk-based auditing, independence, and obligations to the board or charter requirements? It is surprising how so many of these basic concepts are taken for granted by auditors and that we assume management is aware.

Individuals considering an internal audit management role should understand the challenges as well as benefits that may be presented to them within this role. It is critical that certain elements of the job be well understood by those holding the positions. This session is designed to step into the reality of the internal audit management role, and discuss the following:

  • Provide insight on the realities of internal audit management roles
  • Elements needed to build a strong internal audit department
  • Some of the concepts that aren’t always openly discussed within organizations--but are important concepts the internal audit manager should ensure they can clarify with management and be prepared to address on the job.
