- To understand the changing role for internal and external audit and the demands that are being placed on both groups to step up to the plate
- To understand the role of the board and its various committees in a company’s overall effectiveness of risk management

Please create a discussion with the following:
- What is your opinion of the risk (event) identification techniques in place at JAA? How do you think that the company evolved to using such techniques?
- Why is it important that risk criteria be created as per JAA? Do you think it is possible for any reasonable risk treatment plan to be in place without the creation of such criteria?
