Krakow, 26th & 27th September 2013

Challenges facing Internal Control and Internal Audit in the 21st Century

Honorary Patronage Mr. Jerzy Miller of Governor of Malopolska

The financial calamities in Europe and around the world continue unabated. The Eurozone struggles for survival and economic crime continues to rise. In this 12th year of the International Congress in Krakow we have stretched the boundaries in the search for professionalism, protection, competence and superiority in internal control, internal auditing, risk management, corporate governance and compliance, anti-fraud and anti-corruption techniques.

This year’s Congress will:

  • Examine Internal Controls, Internal Audit, Governance and Compliance as tools for identifying and preventing Fraud and Corruption
  • Examine the relationship between internal controls, auditing and anti-fraud issues on the one hand, and risk management, governance and compliance requirements on the other
  • Feature the latest corporate governance requirements, in particular those relating to compliance and enterprise risk management
  • Encourages closer co-operation between the professions bringing each country’s standards into harmony with those of the European Union and international best practices
  • The Congress is a fortification of knowledge and experience in critical activities of our areas of interest and is a ‘must attend’ event for Polish and international professionals involved with these issues.
