The company recently surveyed over 1,500 global internal audit practitioners, from all parts of the world, to collect their views on the state of internal audit and their greatest challenges for the year ahead. What we discovered reflects an evolving professional discipline that focuses on internal control, IT risk and security, risk management, compliance and fraud.
Read the special results report for insight on current trends and issues facing the internal audit profession. One vital factor mentioned in easing the pressure on the internal audit function is the need for adequate skilled resources to meet the growing demands and challenges for management and professionals in the field. The often under-valued task of internal audit can be made substantially easier when managers visibly and vocally demonstrate support for the audit function.
It is clear to us from both the number of respondents and the details of the information received that internal audit professionals are faced with an evolving and diverse job, expanding job duties, and challenges with internal and external changes.
