(ROOM N106) C.S 1.1. The world is changing, but how current internal audit practices are responding to this new norm?

Dynamic risk assessment, a new vision of risk

In a world where economic volatility is the norm, and the past is no longer an indicator of things to come, disparate events can become inextricably linked. This makes assessing risk exposure especially difficult because risk is unpredictable and contagious, and connected globally within complex organizational structures. Have we reached a point in time where traditional, two-dimensional risk management methodologies that focus on single points of risk with high likelihood and severity may be limiting in increasingly complex and global organizations. Understanding an organization’s risk interrelationships can be significantly improved if we find a way to identify potential risk contagion and reveal new insights.

Preventing fraud rather than correct, using forensic technology

When responding to a suspected irregularity, often organisations involve the internal auditors to gather and analyse evidence.  In an ever increasing technological environment, in which any analysis and investigative activity requires access to an enormous volume of data from very different sources, what responses can forensic technology provide for the challenges faced by the internal auditor?  The application of predictive methods in information analysis and the use of data analytic techniques improve response times while making the work more flexible, complete and far reaching.  But we could go one step further: taking advantage of technology- often already installed in organisations - to prevent possible very harmful irregularities such as leaks of sensitive information and other abnormal conduct that can result in an irregularity being committed.  Several professionals of the Forensic team will share the latest experiences of success in these areas.
