Through lecture, discussion, and small group exercise, participants will gain a basic understanding of the risks related to social media, as well as how an effective audit program might be developed.<br /><br />Lunch Topic: ' Social Media Risks for the Company; Opportunities for Internal Audit'<br /><br />Companies today are facing a dizzying array of opportunities in the world of Social Media. Some companies are cutting edge, others only now understand the concepts of Facebook and Twitter, and others have seen the future and decided they want no part of it.

Along the way, participants will learn some of the major risks, what they can start searching for, and some of the opportunities that are out there, not only for the business, but also for internal auditors themselves.<br /><br />Speaker: Mike Jacka, CIA, CPA
