Continuous analytic risk management (“CARM”) has been discussed for decades but implemented in select companies. In this informative training, the secrets of continuous reviews and risk management will be explored while outlining the analytics needed to measure financial and operational performance. From assessing risk in the audit plan to planning specific audits, continuous testing and analytic techniques will be integrated for faster decision making.
Specific learning objectives include:
- See how analytics can maximize the annual audit plan and better ensure focus is placed on top organizational risks
- Learn how the general ledger can provide a digital road map for analytics for fraud (and errors) within the organization
- Highlight culturally what audit departments must do to embrace continuous reviews
- Define the top company areas for data integration which allows for efficient continuous testing
- Discover the scope of using analytics across the entire audit lifecycle from risk assessment, to planning, fieldwork, and reporting.
- Understand the basics of dash-boarding top risks and key performance indicators to maintain focus throughout the year
- Walkthrough a specific audit planning with proposed continuous audit tests
This 2-hour training includes downloadable templates, so you can follow along with the practical examples.
