(Fully booked) BDO Webinar: Corporate governance risk under COVID-19 and the impact on internal audit review

Date: 05 August 2020
Time: 15:30 - 16:30


  • Summary

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic outbreak, we all have been affected in some ways. The uncomfortable situation created by the pandemic has also brought significant business disruptions. In times like this, management needs to consider and incorporate ways to react and response to the current situation and how they should manage the business in order to achieve the mission and organisation objectives. A good corporate governance is important as it provides the infrastructure to improve the quality of the decisions made by the management; while a good internal control audit provides an independent assurance on risk management, corporate governance and the effectiveness on internal control processes.

In this webinar, we will share our insights on the type of corporate governance risks the management of the company should concern and focus. In addition, we will discuss the impact on the internal control review under COVID-19. We will also provide recommendations on how the companies should manage their corporate governance risk and internal audit to react and response to the risks they are facing to sustain their business operations under COVID-19.
