Ethics for the CIA, CPA, CFE AND CISA - In-Person

Managing Your Ethics in the Professional Setting for CPAs, CIAs, CFEs and CISAs.


Managing ethics in the professional setting for the professional auditor is an ongoing and vital part of the job. Here are some key strategies for managing ethics in the professional setting for auditors:

  • Understand and abide by the relevant professional codes of ethics. Auditors should be familiar with the code of ethics for their profession, such as the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) for the CIA, and make sure they are adhering to its principles and provisions in their work.

  • Maintain integrity and objectivity. Auditors should be honest and unbiased in their work, and avoid conflicts of interest that could compromise their objectivity.

  • Communicate openly and honestly. Auditors should communicate any ethical concerns they may have with their colleagues, supervisors, or clients in a timely and direct manner.

  • Stay informed and educated. Auditors should stay up-to-date on ethical issues and developments in their field through continuing professional education (CPE) and other professional development opportunities.

  • Lead by example. Auditors should model ethical behavior and encourage their colleagues and clients to do the same.

  • Be prepared to address ethical dilemmas. Auditors should have a plan in place for addressing ethical dilemmas and know how to seek guidance when needed.

  • Document and report any ethical violations. Auditors should report any violations of professional ethics or codes of conduct to the appropriate authorities or professional bodies.

  • Encourage a culture of ethical conduct. Auditors should foster a culture of ethical conduct within their organizations by promoting appropriate values and principles, and taking appropriate actions to address ethics violations.

This event covers the above strategies. The professional auditors who attend will use them to help ensure that they are maintaining the highest ethical standards in their work. In addition, they will contribute to the integrity of the audit profession as a whole.
