THE ANNUAL INTERNAL AUDIT CONFERENCE

Theme: Leveraging on Internal Audit to Attain Organizational Goals

Date: 14th – 16th August 2019

Venue: Sarova Whitesands Beach Resort & Spa, Mombasa, Kenya

Preview

Internal Audit plays a very strategic role in the management of organizations, both public and private. This is achieved through evaluation of internal controls and proper mechanisms of risk management among other tasks. However, internal audit is not the first line of defense against exposures to risks; organizations must develop effective policies and need to have a pragmatic management to oversee its affairs.

While the Internal Audit is expected to be independent, this is not guaranteed since a good part of their activities rely on management support, therefore its effectiveness is affected by the tone at the top. Internal Auditors have to develop synergy with the board and other key players such as the External Auditors in order to properly execute their mandate. Internal auditors also have to adhere to a code of ethics in their work in addition to application of ICT for them to be effective.

This annual conference has been organized once more to shed light on the subject matters below.

  • The Internal Auditor and the Public Audit Act

The Public Audit Act was formulated in 2015 with an enhanced corporation between the external and internal auditor in the execution of the audit for public sector audits. This discussion will review the expectations on internal auditors as per this law.

  • Ethics, integrity and internal auditors

There have been reported cases of professional misconduct by accountants. Internal auditors face more scrutiny since they are expected to be the watchdogs. Possible reasons including lack of integrity and professional ethos have been identified. The discussion will highlight the ethical requirements for internal auditors and how they can conform to the professional code of conduct.

  • Positioning internal auditors in governance of risks

Risk management plays an important role in the strategic management of organizations. The internal auditors often are seen to be the chief risk managers in organizations and therefore have a significant role in the overall management of risks.

  • Cyber security and the role of internal auditors

Enhanced use of computerized systems has opened up a new exposure to risks which complicates the internal auditors’ work due to the dynamic technology. This motion will assess the role played by internal auditors relating to cyber security threats and risks.

  • Relooking the effectiveness of audit committees in public sector

The National Treasury formulated guidelines requiring public sector entities to form audit committees which are supposed to be independent. Internal Auditors normally report directly to the audit committees. The effectiveness of these committees has been questioned in the face of the many scandals and audit queries relating to public entities. The discussion will highlight the measure that can be put in place to ensure the committees are effective in delivering their mandate.

  • Corporate frauds and the role of internal auditors

There have been several cases of frauds reported in the country lately relating to both the private and public enterprises. This brings into focus the role played by internal auditors in relation to the frauds. This motion seeks to highlight the role internal auditors can play relating to frauds and scandals in organizations.

  • Automation of Internal Audit Function: Opportunities and Challenges

The automation of business operations has led to most companies using accounting systems or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) softwares. The Internal auditors have to automate the internal audit operations to match with the client. Several auditing softwares exist in the market and internal auditors can make use of in the course of their work. The discussion will highlight the audit softwares available and discuss the opportunities and challenges presented by the automation of internal audit operations.

  • The synergy between Internal Auditors and External Auditors

The internal and external auditors are expected to work in synergy to avoid duplication of audit effort. By way of panel discussion this motion seeks to find ways of ensuring there is synergy between internal and external auditors in the course of their work.

  • Emerging trends in internal audit
