Innovation in Audit


Like nearly every other profession in the business world, internal audit and other controls & assurance functions have been forced to cope with the extraordinary environment brought about by COVID-19. Skills, methods and tools that have been advanced and adopted gradually over the past several years suddenly became critical for successful performance. One key area of learning from the pandemic is the importance of innovation and making the best possible use of data and digital tools. But how do you get there? How do you derive insight and value from all the data being captured and processed? How do you identify and evaluate the different types of enabling technologies? And then, how do you adopt?


Data and Analytics


The internal audit profession is continuously evolving. Internal auditors need to acquire and then master new areas of expertise, often related to emerging issues. In this presentation, we will cover impact of data and analytics efforts in your planning approach and audit program, and how data analytics can be used to support a number of different internal audit activities based upon your overall objectives.
