Ethics for internal auditors

Retail Audit Forum: Ethics for internal auditors

This Retail Audit Forum event will cover ethics for internal auditors by way of three key areas: objectivity, ethics policy and governance. Intersecting between these, it will address what an ethics policy is and how to audit one, and ask: what does good objectivity look like? For the governance portion of the event, attendees will be shown how to audit governance effectively and how to report any associated challenges to an audit committee. 

The Retail Audit Forum (RAF) is an independent group that provides a platform for internal auditors, stock auditors, loss prevention and risk professionals and others in similar assurance roles who work in the retail sector to network and share best practice.
