Author: Robbie Atabaigi
If audits give you agita, this hands-on workshop is for you! Sure it can be nerve-wracking when the auditors come knocking but if you attend this workshop, you can toss your TUMS and sleep soundly…even when it’s audit season. In this workshop, we will explore planning for an audit (standards/guidelines; purpose, scope, and objectives; and timeline), fieldwork (kick-off, documentation, and interviews); analysis (testing, evidence, and initial draft report); and reporting (communication with key stakeholders, obtaining management response, and issuing a final audit report).

A preparedness program is more than a plan. It is a management program designed to safeguard employees, protect facilities, minimize business interruption, prevent environmental contamination, and protect brand, image, and reputation. The only way to determine whether your preparedness program meets the needs of your company is to conduct an audit.

Organizations are becoming more proactive in assessing their programs and doing so in a more robust manner. This not only leads to them being more resilient but also reduces the effort associated with simply preparing for an audit. This webinar will examine how organizations are addressing regulatory compliance, which regulations they face, and how a pre-assessment program will help them be more resilient and improve their compliance.
