The QLD Chapter of IIA-Australia is excited to invite you to their upcoming October Members' Meeting on Changes/Implications to consider from updates to the fraud standard.

Fraud and corruption issues have a significant impact on Australian businesses, government and not-for-profit organisations.

AS8001:2021 provides conforming guidance for an organisation to address these issues through their fraud and corruption framework. This standard was recently updated with some noticeable impacts on an organisation’s existing framework.

Split into two parts; the meeting will start with Michael Mahabeer, a technical member on the Standards Australia team responsible for reviewing and updating AS8001, running through the more significant changes in AS8001 that organisations need to be aware of from the updated standard. Then Conor McGarrity will follow, covering the practical steps on assessing your compliance with the new standard and providing a practical overview of how to conduct an internal audit against the revised AS8001.
