CAE Strategies for Partnering with the Second Line of Defense

We know how important it is for Internal Audit to have solid relationships throughout the Company.

During this session, we will facilitate a discussion on the various strategies and best practices needed to:
• Cultivate relationships and break down the silos with those responsible for Risk Management, Compliance and Control oversight
• Develop a fully integrated approach so the entire team is working in unison on the major areas of Risk and Compliance
• Demonstrate a Return on Investment (ROI), where Risk and Compliance activities can be turned into results
