Agile Auditing - Rethinking the Audit Plan for Financial Services Organizations
Agile Auditing - Rethinking the Audit Plan for Financial Services Organizations - 1 CPE
Internal audit is a profession that
struggles against the stereotypes of our past. When we explore our
current processes and methodologies, one area that needs attention is
executing the audit plan. If our focus is setting a plan in motion and
tracking to completion each year, then we are not able to react to
changes in our organizations. Financial services organizations face
additional challenges in trying to balance emerging risks with the
requirements of the regulatory authorities. By embracing the concept of
agile auditing, we will be able to adjust more quickly and act as a more
relevant partner to our organizations.
• Understand the concept of agile auditing
