Internal audit, from compliance to added value
Management should be able to oversee all operational aspects of an organization – including finance and accounting, health and safety, environmental impact, IT, cyber security, client and supplier relationships etc. It should be ready to immediately identify potential risk areas and address them before the risk materializes.
In recent times, executive management has been feeling more than ever the need for quick access to information on which it can rely in the decision making process.
Economic scandals, which have ruined international brands overnight, made the corporate governance process gain an increased importance on the companies’ management agenda, who has allocated more time to this topic, as part of the plan to achieve their strategic objectives.
The expectations for internal audit are that, in addition to its role as an assessor of the company’s processes compliance to regulations, to become a valued consultant for management – dynamic, focused on identifying risks which can impact business processes, as well as a communicator of useful information regarding risk management and opportunities to improve and streamline processes.
In the context of these challenges, enforced by Law 162/2017, companies that have their financial statements subject to statutory audits are required to organize the internal audit activity in compliance with the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing issued by the Institute of Internal Auditors, US and adopted by the Romanian Chamber of Financial Auditors.
Workshop participants receive graduation certificates with 7 credits of Continuous Professional Education (CPE).
