In a “normal” business environment, a key function of internal audit is to help the organization identify emerging risks, address uncertainty, and adjust to changing business landscapes. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations are learning lessons regarding risk identification, responding to risk, and the importance of being nimble. Join two of BKD’s internal audit practice leaders for a discussion on topics management and boards should be thinking about to help derive greater value from their internal audit function and areas where internal audit thinking and approaches may need to “flip” in a post-COVID-19 world.

- Discuss lessons learned by many organizations in addressing COVID-19
- Examine ideas to make internal audit more future-ready as we emerge from COVID-19
- Discuss how data analytics and AI can contribute to risk identification and mitigation
