The impact of COVID-19 has been far reaching and has forced audit teams to re-evaluate how they operate now and in the future.

This event will provide a view on how audit teams have adapted to the remote working environment and how they will need to evolve in order to ensure that they remain effective in future. It will also consider how auditors have been impacted by COVID-19 and the technological changes that may affect the audit profession in future.

What will I learn? 

  • How to undertake audits effectively in a remote environment and what to watch for
  • How audit teams may need to change to remain effective and relevant
  • How audit teams can plan for future technological changes
