Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training on assessing risk management processes will explain the IPPF Internal Audit Standard 2120 in detail, highlight recent updates to the standard, discuss how to comply with it and use it to assess the effectiveness of risk management processes at your organization.

Why Should You Attend:

In 2000 the IIA introduced a radical new professional practice standard that stated internal audit “should evaluate the effectiveness and contribute to the improvement of risk management processes”. Following the global financial crisis, and after analyzing the global state of compliance with this standard, the IIA decided that the word “should” needed to be replaced with “must”.

This webinar will help Internal Auditors that want to help their board of directors meet their responsibility to oversee the effectiveness of risk management processes and internal auditors that want to comply with the IIA IPPF. The session will also help ERM Specialists/Operational Risk Groups for Internal audit evaluate the effectiveness of risk management frameworks developed by ERM specialists and operational risk functions. Knowing the evaluation criteria internal auditors will use to complete these assessments is useful to planning how to best implement enterprise level risk management processes.

At the end of this webinar, the speaker will handle your specific questions related to the topic.

Topic Background:

In 2000 the IIA introduced a radical new professional practice standard that stated internal audit “should evaluate the effectiveness and contribute to the improvement of risk management processes”. Following the global financial crisis, and after analyzing the global state of compliance with this standard, the IIA decided that the word “should” needed to be replaced with “must”. IPPF Standard 2120 became in to force in 2011. Recent IIA surveys indicate a large percentage of internal audit functions have still not completed and reported their opinions on their company’s risk management processes more than 12 years after the first “should do” standard came in to force. IIA CEO Richard Chambers has been actively campaigning to escalate the critical importance of this standard through webinars, papers, articles and, most recently a blog posting titled “Assurance on Risk Management Effectiveness: What are we waiting for? ( IIA quality assurance reviews (“QARs) now specifically focus on this dimension. Boards are being told by regulators globally that they are responsible for overseeing the effectiveness of the risk management processes in the companies they oversee. Internal auditors can play a key role helping their organization and board of directors meet these new expectations.
