Businesses are changing as they embrace the innovation economy. Well-documented advances in new technologies and the drive for innovation and digital transformation are upending industries and increasingly are challenging internal audit functions to remain relevant. The era of digitalization is a golden opportunity for internal auditors. Our widening embrace of advanced technology in the internal audit function, include but not limited to, data analytics and robotics, is allowing for more forward-looking and less reactive actions in our own work.
“There needs to be a fundamental rethinking of the design and capabilities of the internal audit function to be more forward-looking and help improve the business.”
- Brian Christensen, EVP Global Internal Audit
