SA Members Meeting - April

Data analytics - used in ways you wouldn't expect! 

Session Overview

Most of us are familiar with how data analytics can be powerfully used in audits of areas that traditionally capture lots of structured data, such as Payroll or Accounts Payable.

But what about those functions where data is available but isn’t necessarily nicely structured or organised? How can we leverage from data analytics to help us execute audit scopes over these functions and provide additional assurance to our Audit Committees?

This session will provide you with some interesting examples of where data analytics has been used in ways you wouldn’t traditionally expect, leaving you with practical hints on how make more of the data collected by your organisation.


Nick Kazimierczak   
Senior Internal Auditor, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank

Nick has over 15 years of risk and audit experience, working in both professional services and commercial roles, and has loved working with data ever since he first imported a text file into Microsoft Excel back in the 1990s. Nick works in Bendigo and Adelaide Bank’s Group Assurance team, and has recently taken on responsibility for the team’s Data Analytics function. Prior to joining the Bank, Nick was an Associate Director in KPMG Adelaide’s Internal Audit, Risk and Control division, working closely with Malcolm Hewson.

Malcom Hewson
Associate Director, KPMG

Malcolm has over 30 years’ experience in professional services having started his career in data analytics back when CAATs were still young, the DOS command line was all the rage and people had actually heard of COBOL. Excel was still a pipe dream and Lotus 1-2-3 ruled the roost. Having worked in the UK, Netherlands and now Australia, Malcolm leads KPMG’s Data & Analytics enabled Internal Audit (DAeIA) team in Adelaide using state of the art tools such as Alteryx, Tableau, Power BI and, of course, Microsoft Excel.
