Webcast Summary

Amid expectations of regulatory changes, as well as the emergence of new business models that are transforming entire industries, the role of an internal auditor has never been more challenging. That's because in addition to ensuring their companies comply with rules, internal auditors are also taking on greater responsibility for preparing their companies to adapt to fundamental changes in how they do business.

During this Webcast we will discuss:

  • How the roles and responsibilities of internal auditors are evolving from responding to problems to identifying risks before they become problems;
  • What skills finance leaders ought to seek and develop among internal auditors; and
