Event Details

Combined assurance is a co-ordinated approach that ensures all assurance activities provided by management, internal assurance providers, and external assurance providers adequately address significant risks facing an organisation, and suitable controls exist to mitigate these inherent risks to an acceptable level of residual risk.

Combined assurance involves the integration of assurance processes within an organisation in order to:

· maximise oversight of risk and governance and control efficiencies

· optimise the overall assurance provided to the audit committee

· reduce assurance overlap

· minimise assurance cost

· give due consideration to the organisation's risk appetite.

Combined assurance is about assurance providers working closer together to ensure the right amount of assurance, in the right areas, from people with the best skills, in the most cost-effective way possible.


Attendees should have an understanding of Risk Management and Assurance concepts in order to follow the terminology and methodology references.
