Assurance Mapping – Online Classroom

$590.91 - $785.00
Are there gaps in your assurance framework that could potentially expose your organisation?
Assurance mapping is a tool that enables Internal Auditors to visually present all assurance activities of the organisation, both internal and external, as they apply to the organisation’s risks. 
For example, the map might depict the top risks such as the most likely strategic risks an organisation faces, or it might set out specific compliance duties that cover director obligations. A clear benefit is that once complete, any gaps or duplications can be identified and corrected. This course will take you through the assurance mapping process which can be practically applied in all organisations no matter how big or small.   
Topics Covered
  • Identifying the essential enterprise risk management elements needed for assurance mapping
  • Identifying which assurance providers can be included and knowing why
  • Knowing how to assess the extent of the assurance coverage for each process and sub-process
  • Identifying various alternatives to consider when assessing potential gaps and/or duplicate coverage areas
  • Strategies for building a practical assurance mapping action plan for Internal Auditors.
