Has your organization undertaken a significant shift during the pandemic? Have risk assessments, audit plans, risk management, and internal audit procedures been updated to keep pace with those changes? During this session, we will review some of the risks related to the “new virtual workplace”, what implications those changes have to risk management, as well as audit activities. We will discuss these trends and the considerations and the ways that auditing can adapt, and the issues for auditors to be mindful of in their own role going forward.
