8 King 3 on risk management and combined assurance
The board should ensure that frameworks and methodologies are implemented to increase the probability of anticipating unpredictable risks King 3 on IA and combined assurance The board should receive assurance regarding the effectiveness of the risk management process

9 Can CAE and CRO collaborate?
What does ERM mean? How do both functions fit into the equation? How can internal audit assist and yet independently evaluate risk management activities?

10 ERM Definitions RIMS: ERM is a strategic business discipline that supports achievement of an organization’s objectives by addressing the full spectrum of its risks and managing a combined impact of those risks as a interrelated risk portfolio The IIA: ERM is a structured, consistent and continuous process across the whole organization for identifying, assessing, deciding on responses to and reporting on opportunities and threats that affect the achievement of objectives. Source: The IIA and RIMS

11 Common areas of convergence

12 Managing risk makes sense……….

13 Risks that are generally not perceived as well managed How well is risk being managed?
PwC 2012 State of the IA Profession Study June 2012

14 Stakeholders value internal audit’s contribution… and want more Which risks are receiving too little attention from internal audit? PwC State of the IA Profession Study June 2012

15 Lets reflect…………Can IA provide assurance….

16 The fact of the matter is………
Are risks adequately covered in the risk profile? Is risk information simplified or excessively cluttered? Is risk information credible? Expertise of the CRO Stakeholder consensus on risks raised by management? CAE robust dialogue with CRO around ERM? AG participation in dialogue? Is ERM effective? Is IA specific skill available? Does IA have enough budget?

17 Results of Ineffective Risk Management
Poor identification of risks Breakdown in internal control that could prevent the organization from achieving its objective Reactive responses to potential risks, rather than proactive Changing/ new risks are not adequately identified, controlled and managed Inability to leverage on internal audit expertise e.g root cause analysis, impact assessment etc Inability to leverage on ERM expertise

18 Expectations from CAE Timely recommendations Risk impact insight
Quality of recommendations to improve business performance

19 Critical area of convergence for CAE/CRO
Root cause and impact assessments-IA Controls design and implementation consulting-ERM Action planning and real time assurance on implementation according to plan-IA/ERM Combined assurance Effective and efficient communication

20 An effective combined assurance framework
To ensure success, the organisation requires: A common risk language Enabling technology Clearly defined roles of all assurance providers Approved combined assurance policy to ensure commitment to cooperate A communication plan – encompassing ongoing communication Involvement from senior leadership – “tone at the top” Continued coordination, reporting and communication Provision of necessary and appropriate training
