The complex scenario of today’s business landscape, in addition to intensified scrutiny from regulators and various federal bodies have urged internal auditors to take on new responsibilities to help their organizations tackle new risks and mounting challenges. Internal auditing has come a long way; from being an entity that focusses on mere inspections, to playing a more proactive role in gauging the strength of the firm’s risk management strategies, and providing independent assurance to the organization. The work of internal audit teams is more closer aligned with the business objectives of an organization, and the various compliance mandates governing a particular industry. Internal audit is also helping address challenges in terms of training the right personnel to assist them in their expanded role. In order to function effectively, internal audits team have to enhance communication between the board and auditing team, provide more frequent updates on key risks and trends, ensure staffing of qualified people, and maintain consistent reporting on the efficiency of existing controls and strategies.

The four-day IIA International Conference will feature notable speakers who will discuss various issues, current trends in the auditing sector, primary challenges faced by internal auditors, and best practices in overcoming them.
