Internal Audit Seminar - Louisville

If you are not a KBA member, please contact Jamie Hampton at jhampton@kybanks.com or 502-736-1278 for the possibility of attending at a non-member rate.

Seminar 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. local time. Registration begins after 8:30 a.m. and breakfast will be available.

With constant changes occurring within the areas of legislative reform, regulatory expectations, accounting guidance, economic impact, technology applications and cybersecurity risks, there is now a constant demand on banks to improve their risk management and internal audit programs.

The need to focus on key risk assessment principles, complemented by a comprehensive focus on development of audit plans, is instrumental in building a successful internal audit program.

This seminar will focus on what’s particularly important in building your internal audit program, particularly one that matures and maps a risk-based focus to the most critical threats to your bank.

The seminar will have value-added sessions addressing risk and best practice action steps in these sessions:
  • Building the relationship of key bank risks to audit procedures
  • Recognizing the need to enhance your cybersecurity audit program and its relationship to vulnerability assessments
  • How has the credit performance of your bank, and the ALLL changed in the last 18 months? Where should we focus our efforts in internal audits of loans and credit administration?
  • Building your internal audit program with focus on your bank’s BSA/AML program
  • Tenets of an effective compliance management system
  • Staying current on evolving compliance hot topics
The seasoned and experienced senior professionals of MCM CPAs & Advisors will provide you with a full day of key information to assist you in addressing what’s important in your internal audit program.
