RCSA – Audit Quick Check

– effective application of risk control self-assessment (RCSA) in the practical audit environment –


The RCSA method’s audit quick check is based on two techniques for performing audits. On the one hand, there is the technique involving risk control self-assessments (RCSAs) in the form of questionnaires or moderated workshops. And on the other, there is the method employing structured standard-audit interviews. In the latter case, the structure of the standard-audit interview should be oriented in line with that of the risk assessment. This enables a direct incorporation of results into the audit landscape’s risk evaluation that is currently being conducted. The basic prerequisite for the application of both techniques consists of the auditor’s well-trained proficiency with regard to methodology. Each of the techniques is well suited for risk-oriented coverage of audit objects or for subsections of an audit object with low risk.

Course participants become acquainted with the necessary methodology and organizational integration of RCSA as well as individual elements of the RCSA procedure. Components of this particular training and consultancy module encompass operational goals, measurement of performance, identification and evaluation of risk as well as control models and their employment. In addition, participants can apply the subject matter learned in preparation for CCSA® (Certification in Control Self-Assessment®) accreditation.
