18 March 2020: Coronavirus: Business not as usual .. and that applies to internal audit as well.. Blog van James C Paterson
A failure of imagination was one of the key learnings from the 9/11 tragedy, and it looks like many organizations have found themselves with a similar problem with COVID19, and all its knock-on impacts. It may not be a big priority right now, but all organizations who have felt blind-sided by what has happened should be prepared, at the right time, to take a long hard look at their risk management processes.
9 March 2020: Managing the Coronavirus Risks Facing the Internal Audit Function - Blog Antoine van Vlodorp
One of the internal audit’s roles is ensuring the effective management of risk within the first and second lines of defense. Little attention is given to managing risk within the Internal Audit Function (IAF) itself. The emerging risk of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) should trigger an update of the Risk Register of the IAF.
Veel organisaties implementeren momenteel allerlei noodoplossingen vanwege de impact van de coronacrisis op hun bedrijfsvoering. Nu duidelijk wordt dat het om een langdurige crisis gaat, ontstaat behoefte aan structurele oplossingen voor een duurzame bedrijfsvoering op de lange termijn. De Checklist voor de anderhalvemeterorganisatie (pdf, 11 MB) geeft organisaties handvatten voor een succesvolle herstart.
De eerste weken van de coronacrisis liggen achter ons. Als gevolg van onzekerheid, hectiek en korte tijdslijnen was in veel organisaties snelle besluitvorming nodig. Daarbij kan afgeweken zijn van de reguliere interne processen. Lopen organisaties als gevolg van deze situatie onaanvaardbare interne beheersingsrisico’s?
Organisaties maken een grote ontwrichting en verandering door en dit heeft impact op de auditplannen. In 'Internal Audit during and beyond the COVID-19 crisis' (Engels) biedt Mazars een reactie op deze crisis, waardoor hoofden van Internal Audit de belangrijkste risico’s kunnen beoordelen, prioriteiten kunnen herdefiniëren en zich op de toekomst kunnen voorbereiden.
De onderwerpen op deze verzamelpagina zullen u helpen de blootstelling van uw organisatie aan COVID-19 te begrijpen, en nog belangrijker, om uw organisatie veerkrachtig te maken in het licht van deze wereldwijde bedreiging. KPMG helpt met uw vragen en dilemma's.
Veranderingen, zoals digitalisering en verduurzaming, zijn bijzonder ingrijpend en vragen het uiterste van het aanpassingsvermogen. Dat geldt natuurlijk ook voor de gevolgen van extreme gebeurtenissen zoals de verspreiding van het coronavirus. Zijn die mensen (en dus de organisaties) daartoe in staat? Veel blijkt daarbij af te hangen van de houding en het gedrag van mensen en de cultuur van de organisatie.
Omdat we bij ARC People voor veel klanten audits uitvoeren en review werkzaamheden uitvoeren op de dossiers, krijgen we van veel van onze klanten de vraag hoe hier mee om te gaan. Ik geef in deze korte post een aantal tips en ook een aantal redenen om het internal audit werk vooral niet uit te stellen

The IIA and the IFAC teamed up to produce an important tool for audit committees as the world navigates through these transformational times.

Responses from nearly 500 U.S. and Canadian internal audit leaders reflect deep reductions anticipated in internal audit travel and training, some staffing decreases, and a growing awareness that being agile, flexible, and tech savvy will be fundamental for all audit functions in the future.
Impacts of the coronavirus COVID-19 — health and economic — reach ever deeper into virtually every organization on the planet. Internal auditors are wrestling with risks that continue to emerge at warp speed and myriad challenges from working remotely, exasperated by a lack of crucial face-to-face communications.
A new IIA poll of chief audit executives in North America provides a decidedly mixed answer to whether organizations are prepared and whether internal audit is sufficiently involved. The poll, conducted by The IIA's Audit Executive Center, finds more than half of organizations may not be well prepared to address some key factors for returning to the workplace safely.
After weeks of uncertainty and anxiety over the COVID-19 pandemic, sporadic signs of normalcy are beginning to appear. But these signs of normalcy are only mirages. I am certainly not the first to note that business as we knew it before COVID-19 will likely never return.
Each year, the U.S. celebrates the contributions of government workers during its Public Service Recognition Week, which is May 3–9. These celebrations should take on added significance in 2020, in light of the devastating COVID-19 pandemic. Public health workers around the world are the front-line warriors who are giving their time, talent, and energy to fight this terrible scourge while putting their own lives at risk.
27 April: Fraud Report Affirms Internal Audit's Value at Critical Time
Each year, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) publishes a "Report to the Nations," which shares results of its annual Global Fraud Survey. This year's report is no different, except in one very important way: Its message about internal audit's value is needed now more than ever. The pandemic is creating conditions where occupational fraud can thrive.
20 April: COVID-19 Quick Poll: Internal Auditors Cope With Threats While Embracing Opportunities
COVID-19 Impact on Internal Audit, the latest CAE Quick Poll by the Audit Executive Center, provides evidence that many are doing just that.

13 April: COVID-19 Is No Black Swan — It's in Technicolor
As internal auditors, we must not only make sense of how COVID-19 is impacting our personal and professional lives; we must take in the overwhelming deluge of risks associated with the pandemic and help our organizations make sense of it. The pandemic is the first significant test of how internal audit will shape its future in the coming decade. How we perform now, and how we are able to demonstrate our value to our organizations, will be crucial — not just for our prosperity, but perhaps for our very survival.
6 April: Are You Sheltering at Home in Color?
It is hard to believe how much has changed in just a few short weeks. The way we work, play, and live our lives has been radically transformed in the blink of an eye. Some are suggesting that life as we knew it may never be the same again.
30 March: Initial Pandemic Responses Didn't Leverage Internal Audit
In last week's blog post, I made the case for internal auditors to step up and demonstrate their value ahead of the looming recession. A new Quick Poll by The IIA's Audit Executive Center (AEC), which looked at how organizations have reacted to COVID-19, provides a decidedly mixed picture of internal audit's role in the time since the World Health Organization declared it a pandemic.
23 March: Pandemic and Looming Recession Demand Internal Audit to Step Up
Having experienced at least six recessions during my career, I know that economic downturns offer both threats and opportunities for internal audit.

From an internal audit perspective, it offers challenges and opportunities to demonstrate the value that independent assurance can provide to crisis management.
9 March: Coronavirus: Life and Death at the Speed of Risk
The coronavirus outbreak is quickly becoming one of the greatest global risks we have seen in a decade. Its rapid emergence and maturation into an imminent health and economic threat is disrupting businesses and markets, slowing productivity, and generating huge public-health expenditures. The possibility that it could usher in a global recession is real. Yet, the most astounding aspect of this dynamic global threat is that it was not on anyone's radar three months ago.
3 March: Coronavirus: Internal Auditors must do more than Don Masks
The coronavirus is a vivid example of the emerging risks that I have written and spoken about extensively over the past several years. Some are very difficult to foresee, and their ultimate impact is hard to judge. But this difficulty does not mask the truth that COVID-19 presents a clear and compelling danger, not only for the health and well-being of the general population, but for organizations around the world.
