Blockchain Technology: What Internal Auditors Should Know
Event details

This webinar will highlight the various areas from the research we completed with the IIA on blockchain during 2018:

  1. Background: blockchain usage and growth
  2. Current state of the profession regarding blockchain technology
  3. Limits to the use of blockchain by internal audit
  4. Current blockchain use cases
  5. A framework for auditing blockchain application in the organizations

The session will:

  • Offer a concise, yet credible, introduction to blockchain technology for the many internal audit professionals who have had limited exposure to it
  • Provide examples and current use cases that illustrate both the potential of blockchain and the challenges it offered to the internal audit function in those organizations that applied it
  • Offer a limited discussion of opportunities for how blockchain technology might be applied to internal audit functions directly
  • Outline a framework for internal audit to use in developing audit plans that directly address blockchain usage
  • Encourage further study and knowledge acquisition to enable affected internal audit professionals to develop recognized leadership and expertise

Attendees will be able to go back to their organizations with an understanding of what blockchain is and how it could impact them and their organizations.
