The focus on coordinating efforts among the Three Lines of Defense has been a regular point of conversation for the past several years. Based on the most recent update to the IIA Standards, we should consider combining our efforts in audit planning and audit committee reporting in order “to ensure proper coverage and minimize duplication of effort” (IIA Standard 2050). But how exactly can we do this? It’s not as simple as just claiming to rely on the work performed by other groups. The responsibility falls on our teams to review the quality of the work done by other assurance teams and then to hold then accountable for their work so that we can rely on them.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Identify candidates in the other Lines of Defense for reliance
- Perform a review of other assurance provider work
- Apply strategies real world best practices for working together as an assurance team
