Internal audit can help an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes. The importance of a robust internal audit function within an organization has grown due to increased focus on corporate governance procedures; for certain public companies, internal audit is now a required function due to new exchange rules.
Appropriately defined and staffed, internal audit can provide management with internal expertise and objectivity related to the design and function of internal control processes. Additionally, internal audit can provide a window into the operations of the enterprise through objective analysis and reporting of the current state of control operation.
We can help management understand the benefits an appropriately defined internal audit function can deliver within their governance model, and implement an internal audit function to provide management with useful risk and control assessment information. Our staff includes Certified Internal Auditors, a professional designation awarded by the Institute of Internal Auditors, the world's leader in certification, education, research, and technological guidance for the profession.
