 “Audit Committee Effectiveness"

Proudly hosted by our National Strategic Partner, KPMG LLP


 KPMG Logo


In addition to their core duties, many audit committees also oversee a host of significant risks facing the company such as cybersecurity, emerging technologies, and social media. With an increasing remit, now more than ever, audit committees must be effective in their oversight. Audit committee effectiveness hinges on some fundamentals, including the right committee composition and dynamics; an up-to-date charter with well-defined responsibilities; a risk-based approach to setting the committee's agenda; an understanding of current and emerging issues; and proactive, engaged oversight-beyond the boardroom.
