IIA Indonesia will again hold the National Conference offline in 2022. Bali is the right choice in holding this 2 (two) day conference after the previous 2 years it was held online. IIA Indonesia, is part of IIA, the leading body representing internal auditors globally with more than 200,000 members in over 170 countries.
2022 IIA Indonesia National Conference is the premier event for internal auditors who want to hear powerful keynote speakers and international presenters representing the global internal audit profession. Attendees are presented with a number of concurrent sessions on today’s current issues and trends, industry best practices seeking to address common challenges, and knowledge-sharing opportunities.
The 2022 National Conference conveys the theme "Impactful Internal Audit In A Changing World". In a rapidly changing landscape, internal audit needs to demonstrate an agility, integration, transparency, and prognostic approach that together prove its sustainable value to stakeholders. Internal auditors need to have the readiness and resilience in supporting the business world and government based on good governance.
This conference will prepare professionals to face global challenges, digital-driven economic transformation, and energy transition as well as embrace and learn new technologies and apply new techniques to effectively respond to shifting business landscapes and risks while upholding good ethics.
Indonesia's G20 presidency views the need for joint concrete steps in three priority areas, namely the global health architecture, digital economic transformation and energy transition in the context of a sustainable global recovery.
How to strengthen the global health architecture to deal with the current pandemic and prepare for future health crises; digital transformation efforts that must be carried out considering the pandemic period has accelerated the use of digital technology in all economic and social sectors; and transformation steps to support the development of renewable energy.
Why are these three things a priority in the G20 presidency? what is the expected role of society in supporting them? and what have been - and to be - done by Indonesia on those things?
In Law Number 15 of 2006 concerning the Supreme Audit Board (BPK) it is stated that the BPK is in charge of examining the management and responsibilities of state finances carried out by the Central Government, Regional Governments, other State Institutions, Bank Indonesia, State-Owned Enterprises, Public Service Agency, Regional Owned Enterprises, and other institutions or bodies that manage state finances.
As the Board serves as a government financial accountability examiner, the influence of leadership, planning, and ongoing implementation are key practices for successfully addressing high-risk areas. In addition, identifying high-risk lists of government programs and operations that are vulnerable to waste, fraud, abuse, or mismanagement, or require broad reform or transformation can help improve government services to the public and increase trust in government.
BPK as a trusted audit board that plays an active role in fostering state finances with quality and useful financial governance to achieve state goals is the most knowledgeable institution that can share key practices and significant improvements needed to reduce this high risk.
How does BPK play a role and encourage increased confidence in government financial accountability, especially in the national economic recovery?
Internal auditors help organizations confront challenges by providing timely and objective assurance, advice, and insight, using the standards and guidance of The IIA’s International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF).
Today’s rapidly evolving global landscape demands that the IPPF change to better serve internal auditors, organizations, and stakeholders worldwide. As a result, the International Internal Audit Standards Board (IIASB) of The IIA kicked off the IPPF Evolution Project to update and streamline the framework and the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing.
The IPPF evolution project aims to:
• Simplify the structure of the IPPF.
• Clarify and align all elements.
• Ensure that the Standards and Guidance are timely, practical, and applicable and address emerging topics.
• Communicate and advocate the Standards to not only internal auditors but also stakeholders and regulators.
• Enhance internal audit performance and quality and preserve and enhance organizational value.
According to Bloomberg Intelligence (2021), the value of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) assets is predicted to reach $53 trillion, or almost 33%, of all assets managed globally by 2025.
Investors are increasingly using ESG approaches into investment choices. Financial markets may play a crucial role in determining the net benefits and providing the necessary surveillance and verification to allow a smooth transition to net zero.
Thorough due diligence efforts require an audit of how an acquirer or acquiree meets certain ESG standards. ESG audits will also matter when raising capital; debt-rating agencies and investors require this additional data, too.
How should corporations navigate the ever-changing landscape of ESG? How should internal auditors contribute?

As we move towards a digital, real-time, and cashless society, what are the impacts of payments digitalisation on customer behaviour and financial crime?
Digitalisation has brought a lot of new opportunities to the ecosystem. It has introduced new players such as neobanks into the mix. It has also influenced traditional banks to innovate upon their services while providing opportunities for companies to provide solutions compliant with banking regulations in their respective markets.
Digitalisation has also widened the threat landscape related to financial crime. It has provided organised crime and cybercriminals with increased opportunities to prey on every digital consumer. There is an enhanced risk of identity theft and online fraud in the digital space. If not managed correctly, these online risks can erode trust which can prevent a smoother transition to digitalisation, especially in emerging markets.
