An effective internal audit function provides independent assurance to a bank’s board of directors, senior management, bank supervisors and regulatory agencies, on the quality and effectiveness of a bank’s internal control, risk management and governance systems and processes, thereby helping to reduce the risk of loss and reputational damage.
Professional competence, including the knowledge and experience of the internal auditors, is essential to the effectiveness of the bank’s internal audit department. This practical course simulates participants on how to perform a complete and thorough audit of a bank, using internationally recognized best practices.
