About This Course
 
Course Description This course provides practical insights related to contemporary best practices of risk assessment activities and allows you to apply what you learn in order to implement risk assessment activities at your own organization. This training takes a deep dive into the fundamentals of risk assessment; nuances such as audit universe, risk appetite, and fraud; and the challenges of implementation. It also addresses skill gaps many internal auditors struggle with, such as how to develop risk assessment frameworks and how to select or construct a risk ranking system.
 
After reviewing real examples of risk assessment models used by leading internal audit functions, participants will have the opportunity to develop their own risk assessment frameworks by picking and choosing those elements and best practices that best meet the risk assessment needs of their organization, no matter the size or maturity level of their internal audit function.
