Auditing conduct risk

Presented By
Stan Dormer CFIIA Stan is a recognised expert in the field of governance, auditing, business and project risk and IT. He is the author of numerous articles and was the author of the distance learning materials and revision schools supporting IIA qualifications.

When we talk about ‘conduct risk’ we often go on to describe the risk of customer or client product controls failing, or maybe, 'treating customers unfairly'. And, as we know, conduct is on the radar of regulators, leading to penalties or even delicensing. This course leads you through strategies for auditing this subject.

Who should attend?

The course is open to all.

What will I learn?

Upon completion you will be able to:

  • identify and define the difference between conduct risk and other types of risk
  • understand how conduct risk can be qualitatively or quantitatively measured
  • be able to undertake an audit of conduct risk within your organisation.
