IIA Hong Kong Annual Conference 2021

Rising to the Challenges - Embracing the New Future

The Institute of Internal Auditors (“IIA”) Hong Kong is delighted to host our first virtual Annual Conference in the mornings of 15 & 16 September 2021 with the theme of “Rising to the Challenges – Embracing the New Future”. 
 
The pandemic has changed the world and the way of doing business.  Work-from-home has become part of the new normal and digitalisation is on every company’s accelerated agenda.  Cyber attacks are growing in sophistication and volume in parallel with technology evolution, while climate change, ESG, conduct and culture are the common hot topics.  Against this backdrop of unprecedented challenges, internal auditors must adapt to the world of change, continuously adjust their audit plan and the audit approach in order to stay relevant.  

In this conference, we will discuss the key challenges facing internal audit practitioners, the new audit reality and trends, as well as top agenda items for audit committees.  The virtual conference will feature an array of diverse, influential and distinguished speakers, including keynote speakers Mr. Charlie Wright, Chairman of the IIA Global Board of Directors and Dr. Kelvin Wong, Chairman of the Financial Reporting Council, as well as leading practitioners and consultants.   

The mission of The IIA Hong Kong is promote good internal audit practices and value added to firms by the profession.  We hope you will be benefit from hearing directly from our incredible speaker line-up.
