Course description

Risk School

In this course, you first be introduced to the basic concepts of risk, including different types of risks and the different risk management (ERM) frameworks, including ISO 3000 and COSO ERM as well as the IIA's professional guidance on risk management. There will also be a thorough discussion of how to conduct risk assessments, including reviewing several common types of functional risk assessments, including a Fraud risk assessment, an IT risk assessment and a financial risk assessment. Students will also learn about the fundamentals of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), including best practices and walking through examples of practical tools, templates and reports commonly used in the risk management process.

This discussion will explain the concept of Risk Appetite, measuring the Impact/Likelihood or risks as well as Black Swans. Once the student has a good understanding of risk assessment and enterprise risk management, then we switch gears and discuss the concept of Risk-Based Auditing, including how to apply the risk-based auditing approach for developing the annual audit plan, planning at the engagement level and at the audit program level. In addition, this section will include a discussion about root cause analysis and risk mitigation strategies as well as data analysis and continuous monitoring tools to ensure there is an effective method for addressing the risk.

In order to better partner with key business stakeholders and add value to your organization, it is necessary to understand some key business risks. Therefore, the course will spend a significant time discussion several key business risks, including Operational, Strategic, People, Regulatory and Financial, Cybersecurity and Culture as well as a discussion on some emerging risks.
