Digital Transformation of Audit

When:  Feb 19, 2019 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (PT)

Join our panel of audit leadership to talk about the evolution of audit in the age of information overload. Some topics for discussion will include:

·       How do auditors shift through the mirage of data to find the golden nuggets?

·       What are the challenges and experiences of audit teams across local PNW companies? 

·       How does the audit team convince others to share the data with them? 

·       What type of training and skills are needed to mature your team’s digitization strategy?

This will be an interactive discussion, so bring your questions for this annual joint event with ISACA and IIA.
