(Bill) Mulcahy, CPA, CIA, MS, the Chairman of the Board and past President of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), Atlanta Chapter, will join Joe Longo, VP of Professional Services, MetricStream, for a webinar on the topic “Upgrading Internal Audit Infrastructure.” The complimentary webinar is scheduled at 9:00 am Pacific (12:00 pm Eastern) on Tuesday May 25, 2010. 

About the webinar
In response to the changing environment, new risks, regulations and increasing stakeholders’ demands, the internal audit function is moving beyond its traditional transaction-based approach to a more progressive and forward looking one that delivers strategic business assurance and value to an organization. The shifting focus of Internal Audit towards corporate and business goals, strategies and risk management processes needs to be complemented by an upgrade in the Internal Audit infrastructure.

The upgrade will require audit groups to adopt a risk-centric mindset and a conceptual approach to audit strategy, risk assessment and risk management that goes beyond the approach of control based assurance model. In addition, the upgrade also involves developing and maintaining technical competencies and enabling technology necessary for coping with the challenges of Internal Audit in transition.

The speakers will provide perspectives on:

  • Identifying key challenges in managing internal audit in today's environment
  • The scope of an upgrade including the impact on organizations
  • Defining the technology infrastructure necessary to support the upgrade
