COVID-19-related events and conditions have likely caused changes to entities' operations and their related systems of internal control. For many entities, COVID-19 responses have included remote work arrangements and redeployment of resources and personnel. These changes in operations may result in new or changed risks, processes, and controls.

We will explore possible COVID-19 impacts on an entity's control environment and the effect that changes to internal controls could have on the auditor's understanding of the entity and the related financial statement audit. Representatives from the Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (AASB), the Canadian Public Accountability Board (CPAB), and a practitioner from BDO will offer their perspectives.

Additional options and pricing may be available. See pricing and registration for more details.
