Transforming Audits and Assurance with a Data & Digital Mindset

The world today is highly connected, companies are rushing headlong into becoming more digital and processes produce copious amount of data at a lightning fast pace. But, what does digital really mean? What does a data focused mindset look like? How do auditors adapt their skills, thought processes, service offering, and personal brand to ensure they, and the internal auditing profession, remain relevant and sought-after?
 
This session will provide a compelling case for embracing the climate of change and exploring data and digital less as things and more as a way of doing things. It will provide:

– An overview of how data and digital apply to the auditing profession.
– Suggestions on how audit departments can transform audits performed and assurance provided using data analytics.
– Examples of how internal auditors can lead change and champion a data and digital mindset in their departments.
