Ethics for Internal Auditors

Ethics and the role of Internal Auditor

From time-to-time internal auditors are faced with situations which call for them to make an ethical decision. In addition, they may, in the middle of auditing, come across circumstances which themselves appear to be violations of a corporate code-of-conduct.

Several laws now specifically state that internal auditors, in terms of the act, will be bound by the IIA Code of Ethics. This webinar explores the IIA Code of Ethics as it applies to everyday situations the auditor may encounter. The module is designed to provide the participants with an in-depth knowledge of:

  • Ethics Theory
  • The IIA Code of Ethics
  • Applicable areas within Internal Audit
  • Reporting of material facts
  • Corporate Codes of Conduct
  • Auditing Corporate Ethics

MODULE CONTENTS Module contents will include:

  • Classes of Ethics
  • The role of business
  • Employee ethics
  • Honesty, objectivity and diligence
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Reporting of material facts
  • Corporate Codes of Conduct
