Internal audit effectiveness

The landscape can drastically change during winter, so I need to take proactive steps to safeguard my assets.

What does your business do to protect, preserve, and extend the value of its assets? Does it use internal audit to simply get assurance over risks? Or does internal audit go further to protect - and unlock - the value hidden in your organization’s assets?

Internal audit is a critical business function which should play a key role in the success of an organization. Yet many organizations struggle to get maximum value from their internal audit function. Internal audit must build the right capabilities, deliver quality and align with growing stakeholder expectations in order to boost performance.

We bring a full range of capabilities, including co-sourcing, function transformation, and effectiveness and quality assessments, to help you get the most from your internal audit function. By using the foundational attributes of internal audit, we can help lift performance and transform the role it plays within your organization.
