Read Frequently Asked Questions

This 90-minute webinar examines the changing role of internal audit and how an organization can start to develop its internal resources to meet the new challenges that it faces in the current economic and regulatory environment.

Why Should You Attend:

Changing stakeholder expectations and a new view of risk management are prompting an important shift in the role of internal audit in many organizations. More than ever, internal audit is considered integral to a company’s control environment and is constantly challenged to provide value-added and relevant analyses of an organization’s internal control structure, performance and productivity.

This session will discuss the major focus areas for internal auditing in the coming years, such as corporate governance, enterprise risk management, strategic reviews, ethics audits, and passage to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). We will discuss how you can re-examine your views of internal audit from a pure control function to one that actively participates in the development of an organization.

Topic Background:

Internal auditing is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization's operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes. Internal auditing can improve an organization’s effectiveness and efficiency by providing insight and recommendations based on analyses and assessments of data and business processes. With commitment to integrity and accountability, internal auditing provides value to governing bodies and senior management as an objective source of independent advice.

Internal audit’s role and importance has changed considerably over the past few years. There have been continuing examples of corporate wrong-doing, capital market reform, media focus on internal controls and the evolving expectations of Audit Committees.

In its recent Common Body of Knowledge Study, the Institute of Internal Auditors (based on around 13,500 responses of IIA members and nonmembers in more than 107 countries) indentified various issues in the expected evolution of the roles of the Internal Audit activity:

  • The role of the internal audit activity in risk management and governance will continue to increase to become accepted from the perspective of internal audit practitioners as the two most important cornerstones of the profession.
  • Respondents expect an increase in the role of the internal audit activity in training audit committee members, an advisory role in strategy development and an educational role for the organization’s personnel.
