Understanding the role of internal audit is essential to a successful, effective internal audit function. Too often, the internal audit function is part of the internal controls, versus ensuring that the controls are working as intended – which is what an internal audit department should do.

It all starts with developing an internal audit charter, working with the supervisory committee and management team, and designing the internal audit plan and programs to align with your credit union’s risk. An effective internal audit department will strengthen your credit union’s controls leading to a lower risk environment overall. This webinar will focus on elevating the internal audit department and the internal audit plan and programs to reduce your credit union’s overall risk imprint.
