All Methodology and Industry Trends Sessions
Agile Auditing is the new buzz word in internal audit. Imagine taking agile development principles and methodology and applying it to how you create your audit plan, execute your work, and plan the next audit. Learn how you can map Agile to your internal audit practice to create efficiencies characterized by the division of tasks into short phases of work and frequent reassessment and adaptation of plans both within TeamMate+ and as a general practice.
Continuous Risk Assessment - the Future of Ongoing Risk Evaluation in Your Organization
The pace of change in organizations has never been faster. Is your team's annual evaluation of risk enough? There is a move to a more continuous and adaptable evaluation of organization risk and potentially with a data driven approach. In this session, we will explore what continuous risk assessment could look like from early adoption to a more complete methodology by exploring methodology and potential future value in TeamMate+.
Integrated Assurance: Practical Application with TeamMate+
Under the broad umbrella of corporate governance, we find overlapping responsibilities among groups within an organization. Internal Audit, ERM, EHS, InfoSec, SOX, and many other teams are working toward a common goal to provide advisory services to management to support the decision making and risk mitigation processes. Unfortunately, all of these groups tend to work in silos, which adds to management’s “audit fatigue”. Based on the most recent update to the IIA Standards, we should consider combining our efforts in audit planning and audit committee reporting in order “to ensure proper coverage and minimize duplication of effort” (IIA Standard 2050).
