The time has come for a change in continuing education. Pertinent and relevant training that engages and leaves attendees with tools to manage the latest requirements in risk and controls management. Trainers should not be reciting from text books and training firms, large or small, should have a foundation of experienced trainers and consultants that are not merely for hire, but actually part of the company you are hiring. It is time for Verracy!
The ever-increasing demand on Internal Audit to deliver more—detailed risk assessments, fraud detection and investigation, performance auditing, root cause analysis, and more—often without increased staffing or budget can put tremendous pressure on the audit team. Audit teams frequently face questions like: How do we expand the number of audits this year and ensure a quality deliverable without increasing staff or budget? How do we do more with less? These demands require us to challenge our audit techniques and begin to leverage technology in our controls testing. With shrinking budgets and limited resources, this can be an overwhelming challenge for any internal audit function.
In this hands-on (not theory!) workshop, participants will use one of the leading data analytics tools to perform real controls testing while learning to design a continuous audit from scratch without having to be a programmer. We will take a common manual test performed the same way for years in most organizations and learn to automate it. Participants will perform all the required steps to fully automate the process and create a continuous audit. You’ll complete the course having created a continuous audit that runs when needed.
