Auditing Agile - Moving with the times

14 April 2021

12.00 - 1.00 pm

How can Internal Audit understand and adapt to the process of agile auditing whilst still delivering the insight and control that the business needs?

In this session we will be joined by Mark Paton Finance Manager and Peter Mayer Managing Partner , Pelicam who will share their knowledge of Agile auditing and methodology.

The Insurance Industry is being driven by regulators and consumers to provide new products at pace to give different and more varied pricing options.  Internal Audit have a key role in making sure the risk of delivering these outcomes is managed and aligned to business appetite.  Many of the programmes and projects set up to achieve these changes will be run using an Agile methodology.  This session will explore what key things Internal Audit can do to understand the process and how to adapt to it whilst still delivering the insight and control that the business needs. 

This will be an interactive session, and Mark and Peter will take questions via the chat window during each section of the presentation and at the closing Q&A session.
