Continuous Auditing & Continuous Control Monitoring

To ensure we meet your expectations and maximise your return on training investment, we favour a classroom/workshop style set

How will you benefit?

Cost control is top of the agenda for all organizations. How can Internal Audit add value by doing more and costing less? Audit automation is the right answer. Pave the way to the evolution of the audit approach with Continuous Auditing and Continuous Assurance. Set up alerts when breaches occur in key aspects of corporate policies and procedures. We will discuss, with real examples and exercises, how to effectively set up a Continuous Auditing framework. Learn the basics of regression analysis through a pragmatic, intuitive approach in excel.

The course covers the difference between Continuous Auditing and Continuous Monitoring, explaining how Internal Audit and the whole company can improve compliance with corporate policies and procedures. Set up a dashboard to identify criticalities arising in the Internal Control System. Real examples and exercises will provide attendants with all the practical skills required to develop Continuous Auditing in their organization.

Challenges we will analyse:

  • Which audits can be automated?
  • How can Internal Audit retain its independence?
  • Which tools can be used to run Data Analytics?
  • I have no statistical background. How can I run regression analysis?
  • What must change in Internal Audit organization and approach?
