Workshop C

Must Attend – International Practitioner Led! Increasing Depth And Scope Of An Audit: Creating Buy-In With Process Owners And Stakeholders

Robert Rudloff, Vice President Internal Audit, MGM Resorts International, USA Timing: 08:30 – 12:00 Rationale One of the biggest challenges that internal auditors face despite developments and innovations in the field, is process owner hostility. Although this is accepted as merely an occupational hazard, process owner hostility has far reaching effects. Withholding information, reluctance to cooperate and the negativity associated with auditing and auditors negatively impact the results of an audit and therefore the organisation.

The Integrated Assurance Framework: Practical Tools And Strategies To Implement An Integrated Assurance Framework Shatruguhna Samaddar, Executive Director, Axis Risk Consulting, India

Timing: 08:30 – 12:00 Rationale The underlying premise of integrated assurance is that every entity and function exists to provide value for its stakeholders. Every entity faces uncertainty and the challenge for management is to determine how much uncertainty to accept as it strives to grow stakeholder value. Uncertainty presents both risk and opportunity, with the potential to erode or enhance value. The assurance framework enables the organisation to deal with uncertainty and associated risk and opportunity, enhancing the capacity to build value. This workshop will give you key insights that will enable you to develop and implement an integrated assurance framework in your organisation. This will support your orgaisation to maximise value by striking a balance between growth and returns, goals and related risks, effectively and efficiently to meet business objectives. Learning Objectives - Effectively develop and implement an integrated framework reflecting organisational objectives and goals - Optimise governance structures and linking risk oversight processes - Aligning governance and oversight - Embedding effective fraud risk management as part of the integrated framework - Using the integrated framework to create leverage between internal audit and risk management
