In today’s dynamic environment where the public sector faces unprecedented challenges, the need for a robust internal audit function is more pronounced than ever. As organisational risks grow in complexity, the internal audit function must rally to the forefront to ensure that public sector entities are well governed and sustainable.
As we progress through the evolving landscape of public sector auditing, our goal is to explore how internal auditors can take on a pivotal role by replicating best practices, embracing digital technology, and integrating a risk-based mindset to optimise the performance and deliverables of the public sector.
As such, the upcoming Public Sector Internal Audit Conference in 2024 will further explore the theme of “Shaping Tomorrow’s Governance: Innovation in Public Sector Auditing”. This Conference will gather experts, thought leaders and practitioners to delve into how internal auditors can step up and contribute to developing and implementing organisational strategy.
Co-organised by The Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) and The Institute of Internal Auditors Malaysia, the conference is scheduled to take place on 22 February 2024 at Wyndham Grand Bangsar Kuala Lumpur.
