The event was hosted by the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Korea and was physically and virtually attended by more than 300 internal audit professionals from 17 countries. Participants included Audit Committee members, Chief Audit Executives (CAEs), Certified Internal Auditors (CIAs), directors and managerial executives, and internal auditors from South Korea and other countries.
With the theme of “Beyond Change; Leading through a crisis,” the event was aimed at enhancing the value of internal auditors and the IA role in ensuring competitiveness in today’s environment characterized by unprecedented change and disruption. RGS presented the results of the survey conducted by ACIIA and SGV on Internal Audit Transformed: Emerging Risks, Trends, and Opportunities.
The survey results show that as IA moves forward to a future with significant uncertainty, the IA function must evolve by recalibrating its methodology, operational model, technology and talent to flexibly address rapid changes in the business environment. IA is well-positioned to challenge and advise on the risk landscape that business leaders should consider.
