Raise management attention to risks and drive actions towards improving risks management and Internal Control System.

The application of a risk based approach by state of the art Internal Audit shops leads to the evolution of all phases of the audit cycle, especially those relevant to the audit engagement. Adopting a risk based approach means reviewing the way the audit engagement is planned and performed and the audit report is structured and written. During the course, by using diversified teaching techniques, including multimedia, participants will be able to deepen the main drivers necessary to enhance the audit approach. Measuring the audit risk, focusing on key risks and key controls, perform robust root cause analysis, improving the way findings are reported as well as the quality of audit reports will increase auditors credibility, recognition and ability to partner management in measuring and mitigating risks.
