When we hosted our Setting the 2015 Audit Committee Agenda webinar
on February 10, we knew we were tackling a hot topic. After all, the task has become so much more challenging. Not only are audit committees dealing with crowded agendas, but they’re also addressing issues that are infinitely more complex.
The webinar emphasized the importance of finance and audit functions expanding beyond their traditional roles and becoming true strategic partners. It also discussed the impact of technology—
and the audit committee’s responsibility to understand it.
During the webinar, we received an overflow of insightful questions. We’ve included the actual questions from webinar participants, along with our answers, in this article.
