Audit Committee Best Practices

Duration: 60 Minutes
The role of Board of Directors’ Audit Committees has continued to evolve to encompass topics beyond those related to the issuance of a corporation’s financial statements and financial press releases. In particular, Audit Committees are increasing their organizational connectivity to their corporation’s Internal Audit department and expanding their roles to include oversight of cyber-security, material litigation and other risk. Corporate governance professionals must remain up to date about the evolving role and responsibilities of Audit Committees in both public and private companies in order to meet the growing demands they face regarding financial reporting, risk management and corporate compliance.
