The pandemic challenged audit with providing assurance to the organization as objectives shifted, processes changed, staff was reduced, roles and responsibilities evolved, and employees moved quickly to a work from home environment. Organizations learned firsthand about the interconnectedness of risk as a health and safety risk proved to be the initial domino that knocked over other dominos of fraud, security, privacy, conduct, and resiliency risks. As we emerge from the pandemic, organizations need continuous assurance that business is in control. Internal audit needs to monitor process and role changes coming out of the pandemic just as closely as it did in the early days of rapid change. Audit has a critical role to play to provide assurance on what is now commonly called ‘the new normal’ — continued work from home, process and role agility, and resiliency are key topics in the months to come. This webinar will address what audit needs to do to provide assurance to the organization as it moves out of the pandemic into the new normal.
