CPAR - 2019/April, Seg.03 - Internal Auditing: Trends and Challenges

Course Overview
While preparing reliable financial information is a responsibility of every management team, internal auditing is an effective tool for keeping the enterprise performing at its highest level. As a result, internal auditors must be committed to sustaining their objectivity and to placing a priority on their assurance services. Fortunately, we assembled a group of three high-level internal audit executives to address these challenges: Stephanie Johnson of JPMorgan Chase; David Lehmann of Protiviti; and Mark Martinelli of Synchrony.

Learning Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this segment, you should be able to:

  • Define the three main responsibilities of internal auditors;
  • Identify the manual tasks of auditors that have been replaced by cognitive technology;
  • Distinguish between sample-based testing and a population-testing process; and
  • Explain how the background and skills of the internal audit workforce has changed in recent years.

Prerequisites/Advanced Preparation:

Work experience in financial reporting or auditing, or an introductory course in auditing.
