With the impact of Covid-19 extending further every day, all business functions and departments, including internal audit, are required to react and adapt. The impact to business runs the full spectrum from existential to being able to sufficiently respond to customer demand. Internal audit functions need to be highly in tune with and responsive towards rapidly evolving business demands and priorities and perhaps even start to operate in non-traditional ways to support the business.
Now is a critical time to for internal audit to help the business with real-time support.
Following this webinar, you will be able to:
- Understand the evolving role of assurance functions in response to large scale crisis situations.
- Outline how internal audit can focus on protecting and enabling the business versus performing traditional internal audit work.
- Describe how best to connect with stakeholders to identify the business areas with the highest need of support from internal audit.
- Discuss the urgent need to identify and adopt more data and technology driven ways of working as well as the “agile audit” mindset.
