Ideagen, the financial risk and audit automation software specialist, is to exhibit at a key event which focuses on data protection, management and quality within internal audit.

The Nottingham-based global software company will join experts from the likes of Aviva, PwC, and the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) at the event held in Edinburgh in November. 

Organised by the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), the IIA Scotland Annual two-day conference will provide delegates with the chance to hear from senior practitioners from a host of organisations. 

Colin Smith, Head of Audit for Ideagen, said: "Not only will this event provide us with the opportunity to hear from some key risk practitioners in the field but it will also provide Ideagen with a platform to showcase the work we have carried out with customers such as Network Rail, BT Group, PwC and Wylie & Bisset to name a few.

"Delegates will be looking at ways of how to develop soft skills in relation to leading the audit function and influencing organisational leaders on how to position and transform teams for success. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with fellow professionals and broaden their network and this is something we are particularly looking forward to as we will be exhibiting the latest version of our Pentana software, Ideagen Pentana version 5, and our newly acquired Covalent solution.

"IIA Scotland's Annual Conference promises to be an event not to be missed in the auditing and financial risk world and our team are delighted to have this opportunity to take part."

Key speakers at the event include Paul Boyle, Chief Audit Officer from Aviva; Lindsay Paterson, Partner - Government and Public Sector Assurance at PwC and the FRC's Executive Director of Audit, Melanie McLaren. Among the topics of conversation will be topical risk areas and how audit teams can frame their work around them.

The IIA Scotland Annual Conference takes place between Thursday, November 17th and Friday, November 18th at the Dalmahoy Golf and Country Club, Edinburgh.
