Webinar: How a university audit team became the senior management’s trusted advisors

When it comes to building a relationship, first impressions matter. Getting a foot in the door for management approval on new technology is no different. When the audit team at Cornell University embarked on the journey to implement continuous assurance they took a different approach to the conversation and emphasized one key message: be timely and relevant.

By finding the sweet spot between continuous auditing and continuous monitoring, what they call “timely assurance”, the team at Cornell is now seen as a strategic partner to the C-suite and management across campus, as well as a trusted partner with data providers, subject matter experts and technology staff.

In this 60-minute webinar, Audit Director, Mark A. Perry, Audit Office, Cornell University and Data Analytics Manager, Curtis Josey Jr, Audit Office, Cornell University, share how the audit team at Cornell:

  • Built a trusted relationship with management
  • Overcame challenges with data acquisition
  • Evolved their audit technology usage to be repeatable, sustainable and transferable to management
  • Measured qualitative signs of success
  • And plans to expand their assurance program in the future!
