Auditing Culture: What, Why, How? - Online Classroom

A high integrity culture is essential for any organisation operating today. Building that culture is a significant challenge that is not only achievable, but also presents excellent opportunities for internal audit. This opens the door to achieving “integrity resilience,” an even loftier goal in which internal audit can become a key partner. 

Now is an excellent time for internal auditors to commit to tackling these challenges and this one-day course is designed to stimulate participants to grasp this opportunity. This course will provide insights, actions, and tools from which you can conceive, develop, and implement your bespoke internal audit strategy for assisting your organisation with this challenging aspect of managing risk.
