The Essential Experience for CAEs: Risk Management is Dead, Long Live Risk Management

Vincent Tophoff | Senior Technical Manager, IFAC

Mar 09, 2015 | at IIA 2015 General Audit Management Conference | Las Vegas, Nevada | English

In early March, IFAC Senior Technical Manager Vincent Tophoff presented at the Institute of Internal Auditors 2015 General Audit Management Conference on risk management. The conference brought together internal audit leaders and key stakeholders, including audit committee and board members.

Mr. Tophoff’s presentation reminded the audience that the main objective of any organization is not to have effective controls, nor to effectively manage risk, but to properly set and achieve its goals, avoid surprises, and create sustainable value. But managing risk is an inseparable and integral part of this.
