Regulators expect that management will conduct a post-mortem and lessons learned analysis when an adverse event occurs at an institution (e.g., fraud, significant loss). In these situations, internal audit should ensure that such a review takes place and appropriate action is taken to remediate identified issues. In certain situations, the Internal Audit Function should also conduct its own post-mortem and lessons learned analysis to identify improvements needed in internal audit processes.
This session will highlight regulatory expectations and discuss examples of adverse events that have occurred in the industry and post-mortem and lessons learned analyses that have been conducted.
