    8:30 AM - 9:30 AMPS1: Economic Briefing: The Philippines in the Global Landscape
    With almost two years of negative growth of various public and private companies due to COVID-19, the idea of a "v-shaped recovery" has become a buzzword in boardrooms and meeting sessions, specially when the vaccines have become available. Moreover, the gradual loosening of government restrictions and the continuous downgrading of the alert levels have become avenues for individuals and families to revert to their customary habits and activities. These events, which were also prevalent in other countries, have caused the sudden spike in the demand of goods and services and the shortage of supply.

    This session will highlight how the Philippines fare, its ups and downs, in the global economic landscape.

    As a result of the disruptions brought about by COVID-19, various Internal Audit functions were forced to adapt to the present circumstances.

While the government agencies, various public and private companies focused on the welfare of its employees and workforce, the amount of work required remains the same. With this predicament, the need to implement the necessary change in the way to conduct business were highly emphasized.

    At this time, the age of information has no signs of slowing down. The world has been more connected than ever, and this revolution is apparent in our personal lives, businesses, and institutions. Organizations that need to do more with less are turning to third parties to stay competitive. Third parties help companies to drive efficiency and cost savings but pose complex, ever-evolving risks. These risks include cybersecurity, privacy, business continuity, and resiliency risks.

How can internal auditors help businesses in implementing best solutions to create an organization that is risk-aware, fully-integrated, digital, agile and resilient?
