January 11, 2011: Business Risk Management in a Volatile Environment on IIA Canada Webinar
The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) Canada will provide internal auditors with insights into modern business risk management in an upcoming webinar on January 11, 2011 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm ET.
Recognizing that the changing economic environment has posed a challenge to business leaders and boards of directors to toughen contingency plans in times of financial instability, IIA Canada sought to equip internal auditors with modern strategies to get across to the top executives appropriate business risk management strategies.
IIA Canada also noted that it wanted business leaders to set up proper control and monitoring plans in their firms to ensure effective operations of industries, thus improving the “bottomline,” referring to the need to address modern day risks from the uncertainty of the environment.
The webinar’s agenda will include requirements and guidance from standards of the IIA, current implications and updates of the audit environment, approaches to business risk management, and coinciding priorities of the management and the board of directors.
With focus on developing audit plan that is based on risk, IIA Canada will address emerging risks brought about by the changing economic environment through time-based analysis.
Specifically, chief audit executives that play key roles in the industry, such as Guy Desrochers, Internal Audit & Business Conduct director at Molson Coors Brewing Company and Mark Rodrigues, Cara Operations Limited Risk Management Officer, will present case studies involving business risk management and planning in the webinar.
Registration at the webinar is available online for the public.
Participants will be asked to raise questions to the presenters, with two IIA CPE credits that they can acquire at the end of the webinar.
