Using Risk Assessment to Develop Your Audit Plan

Register Now

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.

This audit webinar will specifically cover the following topics:

  • Definitions of business risk, monetary risk, non-monetary risk etc.
  • Specific business risk such as:
–      Capital risk –      Insider risk
–      Collateral risk –      Interest rate risk
–      Concentration risk –      Management risk
–      Country risk –      Market risk
–      Credit or counter-party risk –      Operations risk
–      Foreign exchange risk –      Regulatory risk
–      Funding risk –      Strategy risk
  • The external audit risk model
  • The multi-phase audit approach
  • The risk assessment step by step process
  • Types of risk audit coverage
  • The payback for using risk-based auditing

Those individuals who will benefit from this webinar include:

  • General auditors

Rethinking Bank Audit Efficiency

Register Now

This bank audit webinar is for both external and internal auditors, seasoned and new. It focuses on the need for changing the way audits are conducted. Both internal and external audits have not changed very much over the years which makes no sense given significant changes in the audit environment, technology, the professionalism of auditors etc. We hear about and read about the “auditor of the future.” The future is now.

Emphasis. Audits must become more efficient. The webinar reviews the following four (4) significant driving forces which are bringing about efficiency:

  1. The overall approach to audits
  2. The obsession with risk and risk assessment
  3. The integrated audits which report on internal controls as well as financial presentations
  4. Artificial intelligence

The webinar carefully defines effectiveness and efficiency and how they are significantly different but, nevertheless, interrelated.

Overall Audit Approach. Heavy emphasis is placed on a top-down audit approach with focus on principles, standards, procedures and techniques.

Risk Obsession. The webinar also strongly emphasizes the importance of the auditor’s risk model and how that really is the auditor’s business risk. It also revisits the important business risks faced by all bankers and faced by the auditors who audit bank financial statements and/or bank internal controls.

Integrated Audit. The modern audit now focuses attention on financial, operational, and information technology. All three must be addressed on every audit engagement. The webinar analyzes the integrated approach and highlights how it is a driving force for efficiency.
