ALE Opening Keynote – Internal Audit in the Age of Disruption
The technology tsunami has only been accelerated by the Covid crisis: alternative data, Internet of Things, robotics, blockchain, advanced analytics and machine learning, etc. are changing the world of companies, and Internal auditors have to learn and adapt as they trigger new strategic discussions. How should the IA departments concretely adapt to new emerging business models? How will the roles and skillsets evolve in the next ten years? What part does technology play for IA in establishing an ethics and trust culture? We will also in this dynamic presentation establish how to get a head-start by looking at corporate blindspots: what’s on the horizon for 2021 and how this will affect the work of internal auditors.
