OUR THOUGHTS ON:

Postcard from Schneider Downs' 2013 Internal Audit Team Meeting and Training

Risk Advisory/Internal Audit

By Heather Haemer

On March 18 and 19, 2013, Schneider Downs’ Internal Audit and Risk Advisory Services (IARAS) professionals held their annual team meeting and training. The event’s training topics targeted further development of the IARAS team’s technical, team-building, marketing and client service skills.

Technical training topics included discussions regarding fraud, financial services, SysTrust, Sarbanes-Oxley, SOC reports, information technology, flowcharting, base lining automated controls, networking fundamentals and keys to successfully implementing and upholding the IIA standards. Training also included coverage of various accounting and auditing research tools available to Schneider Downs professionals.

In addition to providing the IARAS professionals with valuable continuing professional education credits, the event included various team-building and networking activities. While technical training topics were the primary focus of the annual team meeting and training, it also provided the opportunity for the IARAS team members to share their diverse experiences and ideas, so that we can continue to provide our insight, innovation and experience in delivering services to our clients.
