Providing Post-Pandemic Assurance Audit’s Critical Role in the ‘New Normal’
The pandemic challenged audit with providing assurance to the organization as objectives shifted, processes changed, staff was reduced, roles and responsibilities evolved, and employees moved quickly to a work form home environment. Organizations learned firsthand about the interconnectedness of risk as a health and safety risk proved to be the initial domino that knocked over other dominos of fraud, security, privacy, conduct, and resiliency risks. As we emerge from the pandemic, organizations need continuous assurance that business is in control. Internal audit needs to monitor process and role changes coming out of the pandemic just as closely as it did in the early days of rapid change. Audit has a critical role to play to provide assurance on what is now commonly called ’the new normal’ — continued work from home, process and role agility, and resiliency are key topics in the months to come. This webinar will address what audit needs to do to provide assurance to the organization as it moves out of the pandemic into the new normal.
This session shall assist the participants in understanding the following:
Understand what the pandemic taught us in risk interconnectedness and change.
Identify the risks and issues that audit should be aware of coming out of the pandemic.
Develop a plan to address assurance as organizations move out of the pandemic into the new normal.
Build a strategy and business case for audit and assurance automation to address risk and control in a dynamic environment.

The North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries (NASPL) was founded in 1971. Evolving from an informal exchange of information among three pioneering lottery directors, the organization has now grown into an active association representing 53 lottery organizations.
Although the Association’s membership and services have grown tremendously over the years, its basic mission remains the same as when it was founded more than 40 years ago — to assemble and disseminate information and benefits of state and provincial lottery organizations through education and communications and where appropriate publicly advocate the positions of the Association on matters of general policy. Included in NASPL’s functions are:
To provide a central information source so that the lottery industry might share with others its expertise, resources and advice.
To facilitate communication among lottery organizations regarding development of industry standards and matters of mutual interest, particularly those which relate to the integrity, security and efficiency of state and provincial lottery jurisdictions.
To educate and train lottery staffs.
To initiate a vehicle for professional and industry research and development.
To promote recognition of the importance of maintaining public confidence and support for state and provincial sponsored lottery organizations as a means of generating revenue to meet public needs.
To establish a public, united voice on common causes and issues.
