Program Materials

This CLE webinar will examine the evolving role and responsibilities of board of directors’ audit committees in light of increased regulatory scrutiny of the committees and their members. The panel will discuss best practices for audit committees and their advisors to meet evolving requirements regarding financial reporting, risk management and corporate compliance.

Description

The role of board of directors’ audit committees has continued to evolve to encompass topics beyond those related to the issuance of a corporation’s financial statements and financial press releases. In particular, audit committees are increasing their organizational connectivity to their corporation’s internal audit officer and expanding their information security (including cybersecurity) oversight role.

Increased regulatory scrutiny of audit committees could result in additional regulation of audit committee disclosure and create heightened expectations regarding the conduct of audit committees and their members.

Chief Governance Officers, Corporate Secretaries and other corporate governance professionals, including corporate counsel, must stay abreast of the evolving role and responsibilities of audit committees in order to meet the growing demands they face regarding financial reporting, risk management and corporate compliance.

Listen as our authoritative panel discusses best practices for audit committees and their advisors to ensure that they are effectively performing in the areas of financial reporting, risk management and corporate compliance.
