European Union Regulations

The recent economic landscape in the European Union (EU) has brought recovery to corporate activities which has reduced many of the worst fears about economic scarring and rising credit risk. The markets for equity and risky assets have maintained a striking buoyancy, making them more prone to new regulations and supervision. 

Amidst the complexities and changes, financial institutions must carry on; as such the internal audit function plays a crucial role in the ongoing maintenance and assessment of a bank’s internal control, risk management, and governance systems and processes – areas in which supervisory authorities have a keen interest. Both internal auditors and supervisors use risk-based approaches to determine their respective work plans and actions. 

This course explores the fundamentals of the regulatory environment in the EU and Eurozone/Euro area, the banking risk frameworks, international compliance and supervisory mechanisms that bolsters the internal audit’s key position in enabling solid communication, organizational governance, and compliance. The Institute of Internal Auditors International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) serves as the bedrock from which transparent guidelines stem, providing a practical approach to sound and responsible internal audit activity.

Auditing Third-party Risks

Using third parties invariably presents a variety of risks for organizations, including strategic, reputational, regulatory, operational, financial, transactional, security, compliance, and other risks. However, when utilized effectively, third parties can also provide tremendous value in terms of specialized knowledge, increased capacity, reduced overhead, and more customized business solutions. Internal audit should be at the front of managing the risks associated with third parties by independently reviewing, evaluating, and reporting on the related business practices. This course provides an overview on third-party risk management, including governance structure and risk management processes. It also specifies contracting, monitoring, and contract termination elements of the third-party relationship. Finally, the content defines the role of internal audit as it relates to various phases of the third-party management audit engagement, including planning, defining scope and objectives, testing, and reporting.

Introduction to Critical Thinking

Critical thinking can be thought of as an art that is woven throughout the key elements of the audit process, including risk assessments, interviewing, testing and analysis, process documentation, and reporting. Effective critical thinking involves collecting and analyzing information, drawing compelling conclusions, and providing recommendations. It is disciplined thinking that is clear, rational, open-minded, and informed by evidence, which makes it ideally suited for application in an audit setting. This course will help internal auditors to gain a deeper understanding of critical thinking and application of its concepts to internal auditing.
