Agile auditing & auditing agile

1 October | Swindon

The ever-changing environment of internal audit means it’s important for auditors to keep pace with the latest updates and issues in governance, risk and control. It’s also helpful for auditors to be aware of the latest tools and techniques available.

As an emerging auditing approach, Agile Auditing is an increasingly popular way to deliver services. In this seminar, learn about this new internal auditing process and its potential to impact the way internal audit provides assurance for its organisations.

What will I learn?

  • Consider the different approaches to project auditing and their impact in this fast-changing environment
