    Organizations today operate in fast-paced environments with an increased focus on governance and a constantly evolving risk landscape. Assessing an organization’s top risks and the appropriateness of response is critical. This is where internal audit proves essential.

    A high-performing internal audit function can:

    • Play a critical role in strengthening an organization’s overall risk management, compliance and control environment
    • Identify, prioritize and mitigate existing and emerging risks
    • Provide assurance that an organization’s risk management program and risk mitigation strategies are effective, add value and contribute to organizational goals
