Modifying Your Risk-Based Internal Audit Plan in Times of Crisis

How to change your risk-based internal audit plan when risk to your organization change significantly. CPE=1

In the middle of one of the biggest impact events of the last 100 years, many internal auditors are most concerned with social distancing and how to complete their audit plan virtually. This completely misses the mark and opportunity we have as a professional with risk-based internal auditing.


Risk-based internal auditing is about focusing our efforts on those areas that most significantly impact the organization being able to meet its objectives, based on objectives. The COVID-19 pandemic will impact every organization in ways that were not imaged when the last audit plan was developed ... which means your audit plan most likely needs a complete over-haul to be relevant this next year.

In this discussion you will learn how to understand the impacts the pandemic will have on your organization (many of which you haven't even imagined) and a step-by-step methodology for updating your audit plan to be relevant with the opportunities and threats faced by your organization in the new normal we find ourselves in as we move forward.

If you don't change what you do this next year to align with what your organization really needs, your risk being seen as obsolete and down-graded by other executives and your board.
