What You See Is NOT What You Get: The Myths of Ethics in Internal Audit

Level : Intermediate

Ethics represents a cornerstone of internal auditing, not only as a profession but also as providing assurance of an organization’s ethical practices. In this session, participants will:

  • be able to distinguish between the actual truths and myths about business ethics: (e.g.. the code of conduct supports ethical behavior; the compliance program helps the organization to become more ethical; whistle blowing tools reduce the risks of unethical behavior)

  • explore the tools (from behavior economics and neuroscience), how to better audit these myths and mitigate those risks;

  • develop ideas to help neuroscience become more ethical;

  • develop critical thinking about ethics in the organizations;

  • develop the sense of professional skepticism, that internal auditor need, in the other topics of internal audit.
