About the programme
Risk based internal auditing and assessment of risk requires internal audit to be strategically and operationally linked to the business risk and assurance frameworks. How does this relate to internal auditors going about their day to day business? The approach can only be truly effective if everyone in the team understands what they are providing assurance on, the skills required to deliver a risk-based approach and how they fit into the wider assurance framework. The course highlights the modern approach to audit and considers the risk of losses to an organization.
This course aims to give internal auditors an appreciation of the strategy and planning for a risk based approach and the ability to apply RBIA to audit assignments and assurance reporting. It also develops auditors’ expertise in modern internal audit practices and developments and covers the processes and techniques required to conduct professional reviews of risk management. It also investigates the reliability of control measures in a range of operational, strategic and financial systems.
