Did you know that the NCUA depends upon the quality of your audit(s) to reduce the amount of time they spend at your credit union? 

"An effective IT audit function may also reduce the time examiners spend reviewing areas of the institution during examinations.  Ideally, the audit program would consist of a full-time, continuous program of internal audit coupled with a well-planned external auditing program.”  (FFIEC, 2007)

Whether you conduct audits yourself or outsource them, you are required to test and verify the security controls you have in place.  How do you select an auditor that can keep up with new cyber attacks and technologies?  How do you effectively audit BSA, ACH, ERM, and other risk-based programs?  Is there an auditing process that promotes quality and efficiency?  Are there auditing tools that can help?  What does audit policy and program documentation look like?  The "M” in the CAMEL rating is partly determined by the quality of your IT examination and effective auditing is vital for a successful examination.  Join us to learn the most efficient ways to complete audits and instill confidence in the NCUA.
