Why This Course?

Risk Based Audit (RBA) approach should constantly evolve in tandem with the changes taking place in and around the corporation we serve as the preferred assurance partner. The increasing demand for higher standard of assurance practices further fuel the needs to re-examine the thoroughness and adequacy of the RBA approach adopted to yield the desired assurance outcome from our stakeholders.


One crucial aspect of the RBA approach is to assess the design and implementation of controls against risks identified. In this regard, the challenge remains whether the right controls are being identified and scrutinized. Could there be any blind-spots such as effectiveness of oversight, change management practices or other soft controls that were not adequately reviewed or reported?


This course aims to sharpen the skills and increase focus of the participants on critical aspects of controls which we sometimes tend to overlooked or dare not venture into. Technique to embed COSO elements throughout the assurance review process (i.e. planning, execution and reporting) will also be shared with the participants using the facilitator’s widely accepted one-stop RBA template.
