Helping you implement Risk-Based Strategies to turn potential disruptions into...
The internal audit function used to focus on internal controls with limited attention paid to assessment or validation of internal organizational changes. Some smaller companies had little to no internal audit function. Most organizations now realize the need to establish or revitalize their internal audit function - focusing far beyond the traditional model.
Companies are recognizing the dramatic impact and benefit of an internal audit function that is agile, properly resourced, effectively managed, and aligned with company goals, which can improve risk management and control processes and drive better efficiencies.
Without an effectively established function that includes items often overlooked, such as a clear mission, communication plan and protocols, audit committees and management can lose confidence in the chief audit executive and the internal audit function.
With so much at stake, the right approach to establishing or revitalizing an internal audit function is critical to its success. Establishing a new or improved internal audit function requires understanding the interdependencies among a broader set of governance, risk, and compliance functions across the enterprise. That’s where IARCS can help.
