Risk management for NGOs and not-for-profit organizations is growing more complex and challenging, with ever-changing compliance requirements, geographic locations, and fiscal resources. Learn how organizations have integrated technology into compliance, such as using a ticketing system to manage leases and bank accounts, the gamification of compliance knowledge, and integrating technology into internal audit. Understand the convergence of internal audit, operations, compliance, and risk management and return to your organization with practical technology tools to enhance compliance, as well as risk management strategies.
