Auditing Third Party Risk and Auditing Fraud Risk
As if managing your organisation’s own risk profile isn’t challenging enough today, management must concern itself with how every one of their suppliers and vendors addresses risk. That’s right -management is responsible for the risk-related action or inaction of everyone in their service and supply-chain network.
How concerned should your organisation be about the dangers of third-party risk today? In short – very concerned. Third-party risk should be a top-of-mind concern for all businesses today – from global giants to two-person start-ups. If your business engages supply-chain partners or outsources anything, third-party risk should be on your internal audit radar.
This half-day course will show you how to begin to provide effective, professional insight and internal audit assurance over this important area.
Internal auditors are also expected to provide assurance over their organisation’s fraud risk management framework and control arrangements. They must also be able to react to the rapidly changing business environment and emerging fraud risks. Building on our morning session in the afternoon, this second half-day course will help you better address fraud risk management and enable you to provide more insightful assurance in this key area.
