The Next Generation of Internal Auditing – Are You Ready?
A forward-looking audit function should provide insight, oversight and foresight around an organisation’s current and future risks and controls, especially in today’s fast-paced, “innovate or die” business environment. Data and technology-enabled business transformation is occurring at a pace we have not previously seen.
