Why should you join the webinar?
Internal audit is potentially one of the most powerful tools in the audit committee’s armoury. When properly resourced, positioned and targeted, professional internal audit provides the kind of insight that boards need to make effective decisions.
Internal audit can provide independent assurance over how well the business is managing its risks, taking advantage of fast-moving opportunities and whether its corporate governance processes are operating effectively. Internal auditors who follow the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) not only bring technical rigour to their assurance activities, they continually improve the quality of their work through formal internal and external assessments – a process that helps improve the overall corporate governance of the organisation.
The webinar will explore the recent publication ‘Harnessing the Power of Internal Audit’ created in collaboration with the Institute of Directors. Join us to discuss how internal audit can engage with key stakeholders and work with the audit committee to drive cutting-edge internal audit, and help businesses deal with a wide variety of issues outside of the compliance arena – from data privacy and automation, to political uncertainty and reputation risk.
