9th International VIRTUAL Conference of IIA – Slovenian institute

Internal Audit at a Crossroad

This educational journey will be rich with insights for internal auditors at every level and across all industries This year’s theme is in accordance with entering a new decade: Internal Audit at a Crossroad.

Internal audit is facing with greater demands (or “challenges”), caused by rapid and sudden changes in all aspects of organization’s operations. COVID-19 has drastically altered the risk landscape, posing significant new challenges for the internal audit profession. Conference presentations serves to illuminate the ways in which internal auditors can not only rise to the occasion, but in so doing can help ensure the relevance and sustainability of the profession beyond these challenging times in which we live. This year’s program includes international as well as Slovene professionals. Topics are diverse, but each is meant to open new horizons in internal audit functions.

We are very pleased to announce that the participation has been confirmed by
