Best Practice Guidance for Audit Committees - Risk Management & Internal Control

Date : 5 May 2016

Time: 08.30 - 12.30

Location: Hennessy Park Hotel

Risk manifests itself in a range of ways and may have a positive and/or negative outcome for the entity. It is vital that those responsible for the stewardship and management of an entity are aware of the best methods for identifying and subsequently managing such risk.

A Company is, in the ordinary course of business, exposed to several types of risk, some of which may have serious adverse consequences. Consequently, it is advisable to ensure that the risks are fully understood and controlled in a sustained and comprehensive manner.

The Board is responsible for not only determining the risks that the Company is willing and able to take to achieve its strategic objectives but also ensuring that all the risks are properly identified, evaluated and managed.

The focus of this workshop is geared towards companies with no separate Risk Management Committees, i.e., those in which the Audit Committee also assumes the responsibilities of the business risk. The Audit Committee’s role is thus expanded from its normal outlook into the Company’s historical financial performance, abiding by the existing compliance and control requirements, to a broader consideration of future performance and risk.

This workshop will cover specifically the Audit Committee’s role in control and management of risk.
