Overview

Geopolitical and economic uncertainty, cybersecurity, tax risks, regulator scrutiny, audit quality, an environment of changing standards and regulatory requirements, these are only a sampling of the issues that audit committees are facing. As we look towards year-end meetings, some of the questions that audit committee members may be considering include:

  • How are audit committees dealing with the geopolitical and economic environment as well as aspects of risk that are evolving rapidly from year to year such as cybercrime and tax?
  • What are the trends in financial reporting?
  • What is on the radar screen of the regulators?

These questions, and many more, are considered by our panel as they help audit committee members prepare for year-end meetings and financial reporting filings and look forward to the year ahead.

This session of the Directors Series focuses on the top-of-mind risks for audit committees, a review of financial reporting trends, a regulatory update on the OSC’s priorities for 2016, and much more.
