There is no doubt that technology and digitalisation bring about many advantages to business. However, as technology slowly pervades all aspects of operations, new risks also arise. This certainly has significant impact on the internal controls of an organisation. How can internal controls be enhanced with technology and how has technology changed the way the internal controls teams look at risk? More importantly, how do we find the balance between innovation and control risks?

Are you applying internal controls in the best way to support future growth in a digital environment?

ACCA, PwC and INSEAD EMI are delighted to invite you to explore this question with us at our Smart Finance launch event where we share insights from a joint report looking at Internal Controls in the Digital Age.

You can look forward to:

  • Identifying key emerging technologies that will generate risks and impact internal controls
  • Exploring how technology could be used to redesign internal controls in order to reduce risk and cost; and look at actual digital solutions to enhance controls, through demos.
