Seven key priorities for audit committees in 2017.
Financial reporting, compliance, and the risk and internal control environment will continue to be put to the test in 2017 - by slow growth and economic and geopolitical uncertainty, technology advances and business model disruption, cyber risk, greater regulatory scrutiny and investor demands for transparency, and more. Focused, yet flexible agendas, exercising judgment about what does and does not belong on the committee’s agenda, and when to take deep dives, will be critical.
Drawing on insights from our recent ACI pulse survey work and interactions with audit committees and business leaders over the past 12 months, we have highlighted seven items that, in our opinion, audit committees should keep in mind as they consider and carry out their 2017 agendas.
