Interim audit manager

Philips International B.V.
I was invited to work for the Corporate Internal Audit department at Philips International in order to give support to the SoX certification process for Philips in general and carrying out SoX-related audits and follow-up on remediation for the global datacenters in specific. This job was very interesting and took place under significant time constraints, with a hard dead-line. This job was both managerial, including reporting to higher management, as well as hands-on as auditor. Many parties were involved, like KPMG as external auditor, E&Y as support to Corporate Internal Audit and Corporate IT and external service providers to make the picture complete. The job included, audit scoping, audit planning, audit execution, audit reporting and audit remediation. I enjoyed this job so much, that I decided to specialize myself in IT Audit and IT Risk Management, and obtained certification as an IT auditor (CISA) and Certified Business Resilience Manager (CBRM)
