The Three Lines of Corporate Defence

Intake Opening Soon 5.00-7.00pm Online



The Three lines of Defence model provides a simple and intuitive guidance for the board as well as the audit committee, to monitor the effectiveness of the company’s risk management, internal control and internal audit. Like every model, the Three lines of Defence is a simplification of reality so that the underlying assumptions and the graphical representation of the model can be changed as necessary.

Assessment Questions and Answers

In line with MFSA requirements, a short multiple-choice assessment will be provided by the trainer towards the end of the session. A Certificate of Attendance will be awarded to all students who attend the CPD (duration will be included on certificate).
