Curriculum

This audit webinar is valuable for internal auditors at all levels. It is designed for auditors who are responsible for auditing, reviewing or otherwise “covering” business risks. It takes the mystery out of the overall risk assessment process.

It gives the webinar attendees a logical framework to use when faced with the assignment of preparing an annual audit plan or parts thereof. It also allows attendees to “solve” the pressing problem of providing comprehensive audit coverage with limited resources.

The risk assessment approach gives auditors a plan that assures management and the audit committee that resources are being allocated so that high risk auditable activities are receiving more appropriate audit coverage than low risk auditable activities.

All those who must decide what to audit and what not audit should attend. It is valuable for those who put together a plan for the board or its audit committee showing what will be covered via audit. It explains that the audit plan and the audit coverage is determined after a careful assessment of business risks.
