Assessing and Manging Strategic Risks
What, Why, How for Internal Auditors

by Richard J. Anderson and Mark L. Frigo

Today's dynamic risk environment has increased the need for internal auditors to help their businesses identify, address, and manage the strategic risks facing the business. Research on internal audit stakeholders conducted as part of The IIA's Common Body of Knowledge (CBOK) 2015 study confirms that executive management and directors expect and value internal audit expanding its roles to include both providing assurance over the organization's strategic risks and assisting management to enhance their risk management processes over strategic risks.

While the book discusses key concepts and possible roles and activities for internal audit related to strategic risks, the primary focus of the book is on two key processes: the assessment of strategic risks and strategic risk management. It provides frameworks on strategy and strategic risks and a basic strategic risk assessment methodology. Also included are helpful tools such as strategy maps, risk heat maps, a strategic risk management diagnostic, and detailed process charts.

This book is designed to provide internal auditors with sound, pracitical advice that can better enable them to meet this critical challenge and add this dimension to their existing risk assessment processes.

Managing Risk in Uncertain Times
Leveraging COSO's new ERM Framework

by Paul J. Sobel, CIA, QIAL, CRMA

Successful organizations figure out ways to effectively manage their risks to thrive in an uncertain and rapidly changing world. Some rely on the experience and business savvy of their leaders; many others leverage a more disciplined approach, commonly referred to as enterprise risk management (ERM).

In 2014, the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) announced commencement of an update to its 2004 ERM framework Enterprise Risk Management - Integrated Framework. The new framework, published in September 2017, is titled Enterprise Risk Management - Integrating with Strategy and Performance. Designed to help organizations better pursue opportunities and manage threats, the update:

  • Recognizes the importance of strategy and entity performances as the central consideration for risk management.
  • Better distinguishes between internal controls and ERM.
  • Positions ERM as an integral part of decision-making.

Throughout this book, author Paul Sobel provides implications for internal auditors or risk managers, and sometimes both. Theses implications will help them understand the new framework and provide examples of how they can be an integral part of helping their organizations successfully manage risk in uncertain times.

Sawyer's Guide for Internal Auditors, 6th edition 2013

An indispensable tool for every Internal Auditor

First published in 1973, Larry Sawyer's work has helped guide many internal auditors and shaped the profession. While the foundational principles of internal auditing remain core, the everchanging global business environment requires that internal auditors continue to adapt their position as value-adding partners in their organizations or risk becoming obsolete.
Sawyer's philosophy was that internal auditors should watch for emerging trends while keeping pace with changes in The IIA's International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (Standards), IT, legislation, and regulations - and to respond effectively to international events and evolving governance and risk management mandates. This 6th edition is a three-volume set, making the content more navigable for the reader, and each volume includes an index and glossary for easy reference.

Volume 1 - Internal Audit Essentials

This volume provides the basic background information that informs the pracitce of internal auditing. The history of internal auditing is explored and culminates in the profession as the risk-based endeavor it is today. Risk and control models are introduced along with IT-frameworks. Finally, the differences between assurance and consulting engagements and the specific activities involved for each are enumerated, and a thought-provoking discussion of blended engagements is provided.

Volume 2 - Internal Audit Processes and Methods

Volume 2 is more tactical than Volume 1. Beginning with the broader view of managing client and stakeholder relationships and managing audit processing, it narrows its focus to cover specific audit processes and methods, such as:

  • Defining the audit/risk universe.
  • Planning assurance engagements.
  • Evaluating control design
  • Testing controls
  • Documenting work performed.
  • Communicating results.
  • Engaging in consulting activities.

Volume 3 - Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance Essentials

Volume 3 includes an introductory chapter presenting a holistic view of governance, risk management, and compliance before exploring the individual concepts in three seperate chapters. Additionally, the specific responsibilities internal auditors have regarding fraud and ethics are discussed. New to this edition, corporate social responsibilities and sustainability is defined and contributionas internal auditors can make to this growing initiative are outlined.
