Event Overview:


The concept of data analytics is not new to auditors. However, it has never been so pressing with stakeholders expecting internal audit to up their game, be digitally equipped and apply data analytics to achieve greater assurance and provide more timely insights. With increase technology and data availability, internal auditors are expected to leverage data and apply data analytics effectively.

In this Learn At Lunch session, the speakers will share their journey and practical examples which will hopefully equip you with practical takeaways you can immediately apply in your work.  The examples provided will range from basic to intermediate data analysis/techniques rather than more advanced techniques involving complex coding/ machine learning.
