Risk Audit School

Risk Audit School

In this course, learners will be introduced to the basic concepts of risk, including different risks and risk management (ERM) frameworks, such as ISO 3000 and COSO ERM, and the IIA's professional guidance on risk management. There will also be a thorough discussion of how to conduct risk assessments, including reviewing several common types of functional risk assessments, such as a fraud risk assessment, an IT risk assessment, and a financial risk assessment. Learners will also learn about Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) fundamentals, including best practices. They will walk through examples of practical tools, templates, and reports commonly used in the risk management process. This discussion will explain the concept of Risk Appetite, measuring the Impact/Likelihood or risks, and Black Swans.

Once the learner understands risk assessment and enterprise risk management, we will switch gears and discuss the concept of Risk-Based Auditing, including how to apply the risk-based auditing approach toward developing the annual audit plan and planning at the engagement and audit program levels. In addition, this section will include a discussion about root cause analysis, risk mitigation strategies, and data analysis; it will also cover continuous monitoring tools to ensure there is an effective method for addressing risk.
