"[Course] offers a fresh perspective on processes and controls. Reorganising our thinking process as to how to map out the controls and clarifying ownership in risk management and audit."
Senior Audit Manager, EFG Hermes, Egypt

Having an appropriate and forward-looking strategy is critical for any firm and particularly for banks.  Given the nature of the changing environment, identifying the trends and customer expectations leading to the development of an appropriate strategy is of primary importance.

Internal audit needs to be in a position to provide the necessary challenge to this important area and to deliver the required level of assurance to senior management.

During this course  delegates will gain a thorough understanding of the key element of strategic risk, enabling them to select the appropriate audit approach that they will be able to apply in practice and as a group develop audit programs for their workday desk-based use.



"[The course] provided a different angle in the way we should assess our strategy and clients post covid."
Internal Audit Manager, USA Bank, New York
