2019 priorities for boards and audit committees

By Elizabeth Lynch

Talent in the boardroom and throughout the organization, along with understanding the potential impact of disruptive risks posed by advances in digital technologies will be critical areas of focus for boards in 2019.

The On the 2019 board agenda and On the 2019 audit committee agenda reports draw on insights from the Board Leadership Center’s and Audit Committee Institute’s work and interactions with corporate directors and business leaders.

KPMG’s On the 2019 audit committee agenda highlights risk and regulatory issues beyond the committee’s core oversight responsibilities (financial reporting integrity, internal controls, and audit quality) that audit committees will want to prioritize, such as sharpening the company’s commitment to culture, ethics, and compliance, and understanding how developments in technology and the use of data will impact the finance organization.
