Webinar: The Terrifying Concept of Unethical Internal Auditors

Register here

Ethics is a cornerstone of the internal audit profession and forms the underlying foundation for an effective internal audit function. The IIA requires internal auditors to improve governance processes through (among other things) an evaluation of an organisation’s ethical programs and activities. Most internal auditors demonstrate exemplary ethical behavior but what happens in situations where the internal auditors themselves are unethical?

In a world rife with ethical scandals impacting governments and businesses, internal auditors are not immune to bad behavior. This webinar, informed by input from Australian and global internal audit leaders, will provide a perspective of what can go wrong with internal auditors and functions; be it pretending to hold qualifications, falsifying work papers, turning a blind eye to irregularities, etc. It will also recommend practical and sustainable measure to mitigate unethical behavior and safeguard the credibility of the internal audit function.

What I will learn:

  • The spectrum of potential unethical internal audit behaviour
  • Factors and red flags which may increase the likelihood of unethical behaviour
  • Requirements of the IIA Standards and Code of Ethics
  • Practical steps to actively promote ethical behaviour

Who should attend:

  • Internal audit professionals who would like to familiarise themselves with potential ethical dilemmas and refresh their understanding of the IIA Code of Ethics.
  • Professional Members of the IIA Australia who require annual CPE in the subject area of ethic.
