C8: Writing "Meaningful" Audit Findings  -  Richard Kish – (All)

The paper will present a hands on approach on how to write "Meaningful" Audit Findings and then to follow them through a documented closeout.

Writing audit findings that management can understand will make them more committed to take immediate corrective action.  Findings also need to be detailed as to what part of the standard they violate, these will help to identify trends in the audit findings. These serve as input the management review process.  We don’t want to see are internal auditors identifying a bunch of training findings if our customers are identifying significant design control issues.
