Registration for this event as at capacity. We are recording the session for playback early next week. Thank you for your understanding.
As organizations grapple with the ramifications of COVID-19 — both internally and externally — there seem to be more questions than answers: Which audits should take priority? How do you audit these when face-to-face, traditional approaches could impose risks? What strategic and financial actions need to be taken? What employee-focused and customer-focused decisions need to be made? Is internal audit, the board, and senior management in sync regarding COVID-19 actions, and is information sharing being conducted in a timely, accurate, and transparent fashion? Join The IIA’s Director of CAE Services Tim Berichon for a discussion on the “new normal” of social distancing and internal audit. Participants will learn the following:
- Nontraditional or “social-distancing” ways to audit.
- Employee-focused and customer-focused decisions for consideration.
- Strategic and financial actions organizations and internal audit should consider.
- Ways your organization can ensure timely, accurate, and transparent information sharing among internal audit, the board, and senior management.
