The audit profession has evolved substantially from its backward-looking audit practices into predictive, data-driven audit findings that executives rely on every day to make informed decisions. By conducting risk assessments based on your organization’s entire data population, management will gain the in-depth insights into the organization’s risk landscape for effective business decision-making—without having to piece together multiple spreadsheets and reports.
However, the challenge lies in learning how to develop strategies and leverage efficiencies by using audit analytics. This empowers your team to create impactful audits and directly influence real-time risk intelligence. Watch this on-demand webinar to learn how taking a complementary approach to data analytics and risk assessments can help you easily identify applicable controls that can be used to automate tests and present the value behind data analytics that in turn, dynamically update risk scores.
In this video, Phil Shomura, Senior Product Manager at ACL, and Viktor Culjak, Manager, Data-Driven GRC at ACL, discuss:
- How strategic risk assessments will allow you to review trends and drive necessary changes in your organization
- The benefits of control automation, which include long-term savings on resources, reduced human-error, and increased ROI
