The IIA International Conference 2024, happening from July 15-17 in Washington, DC, is an event filled with opportunities for internal audit professionals. Here are the top five things I’m eagerly anticipating:

1. Insightful sessions on emerging technologies

The conference features sessions on AI, cybersecurity, and other emerging technologies, offering valuable insights into their applications and advancements in the internal audit field. These sessions are essential for understanding how to enhance audit processes with new tools and technologies.

2. Networking opportunities with peers

One of the most valuable aspects of the conference is the opportunity to network with fellow professionals. The IIA International Conference provides numerous chances to reconnect with peers, share experiences, and discuss challenges and successes in the internal audit field. These interactions can lead to meaningful collaborations and the exchange of innovative ideas.

3. Comprehensive coverage of fraud and risk management

Fraud and risk management are critical areas for internal auditors. The conference will delve into emerging risks such as anti-money laundering, ransomware, and advanced fraud detection techniques. I’m looking forward to understanding new methodologies and strategies to mitigate these risks effectively within my organization.

4. Focus on sustainability and ESG reporting

With the growing emphasis on sustainability, the sessions on environmental, social and governance (ESG) reporting will be highly relevant. These sessions will explore how internal auditors can play a pivotal role in ensuring accurate and transparent ESG reporting and how to integrate sustainable practices into the audit process.

5. Leadership and governance strategies

Effective governance and leadership are foundational to successful internal audit functions. The conference will offer sessions on governance structures, leadership strategies, and enhancing board relations. I’m particularly interested in sessions that address the evolving role of chief audit executives (CAEs) and their interaction with audit committees and executive management.
