Establishing a Data-Driven Culture at NC State for Finance and Audit

Getting started with data analytics can be a challenge. Sustaining a successful start and continuing to innovate can be even more challenging. In this webinar, see examples of data analytics for finance and audit that have been developed at North Carolina State University (NC State) with assistance from Visual Risk IQ, their data analytics consultant and Tableau partner.

Watch to see how these analytics have been built and describe the importance of tone at the top and the important cultural changes that are needed to help facilitate the repeatable application of similar data analytics for other audit and finance applications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the technical and non-technical skills needed to establish a data-driven internal audit culture.
  • See common challenges related to data acquisition and business domain expertise and learn how we’ve overcome these challenges at NC State and across the UNC System.
  • Learn how NC State has established a community for knowledge sharing, including web-based resources to help throughout the planning, data acquisition, fieldwork, and reporting.
  • See examples of thoughtful and innovative data-driven auditing, and how we’ve combined traditional data analytics and visual reporting to be truly impactful for our key stakeholders.

This is part of the Public Sector: Fraud, Waste, and Abuse webinar series.
