It was a good kickoff of the new year, with more than 1,500 forward-looking directors and executives logging on to our January 7th webinar
, Setting the 2016 Audit Committee Agenda. Hosted by Protiviti’s Brian Christensen and David Brand and me, the webinar was based on our latest issue of The Bulletin
, which I’ve tweeted about, but have not previously addressed here.
Given the high attendance and rapid-fire Q&A (we will be covering some of these questions on this blog soon), I want to recap Protiviti’s ten Mandates for Audit Committees in 2016 that shaped the discussion. These mandates are intended to augment the normal, ongoing operations of the committee. The first five address issues pertaining to enterprise, process and technology risk issues. The rest focus on financial reporting issues.
