Poster of the Internal Audit Service Conference

This year’s theme was “From hindsight to insight and beyond - How Internal Audit may contribute to foresight”.

We focused on how (internal) auditors may embrace foresight by taking a more proactive approach in their assurance and advisory roles.

By combining hindsight and insight with foresight, we all might be in a better position to address risks to operations and processes before they materialise. Perhaps these risks may be of a more diverse nature compared to those we have met before. Moreover, the intention is also to arrive at a more advanced integration and cooperation of the three lines of defence, focused on the provision of adequate levels of assurance.

The following topics were explored : 

  • Hindsight / Insight / Foresight... to look deeper and see further? How may (internal) auditors provide any foresight at all?
  • COSO and the 3 lines of defence model: How can they contribute more to insight (and beyond)?
  • Can (internal) auditors keep pace with stakeholders’ increasing expectations?  What can the (internal) auditors do to stay relevant?
  • Ensuring the right organisation, processes, skills and technology: How do (internal) auditors have to adapt their working methods to deliver and add value.
