Sound ethics programs and controls are at the heart of establishing a proper “Tone at the Top,” an overall corporate governance framework. Auditors are in a unique position to add value to organizations since they bring an independent assurance perspective to the fore. This program will explore the vital audit/ethics linkage, as well the role that auditors can play in supporting an organization’s entity wide controls, governance systems, and risk management frameworks. We will reference the prevalent professional guidance in these areas.
- Review key principles of external and internal auditor codes of conduct/ethics
- Distinguish auditor ethics from client/organization ethics programs and activities
- Highlight strategic opportunities for auditors to add value by promoting enhancements to ethics programs and controls
