Why Should you Attend:

The year 2008 will always be remembered as a year of economic downturn. Post Enron and 2008, the investors are doubting the credibility of companies which in-turn is hurting the latter's future and growth. Hence new regulations such as SOX were established to maintain transparency in the financial statements and relevant declarations to increase a sense of credibility of these companies in the minds of the investors. The question remains with them is that, are they using proper tools to ensure that all controls are in place and they are complying to all the rules and regulations, are gaps identified and sealed in timely manner?

Such companies are looking for systematic tools for auditing various entities, recording and analyzing the gaps, addressing grey areas, applying controls and ensuring that they are complying to various rules and regulations. This session will help you understand how Internal Auditors can meet these challenges by implementing a systematic risk based approach for auditing entities.

The speakers will provide insights on:

  • Understanding the key challenges faced by organizations which can question their credibility
  • Emerging role of internal auditors
  • How to establish a simple, efficient and cost-effective process
  • How Technology can play a role in underlining gaps, sealing them and checking their compliance with rules and regulations
