Internal audit modernization

An agile, digitally led end-to-end internal audit life cycle

An internal audit function should do more than just uncover what's happened in the past. It should offer an agile and dynamic view of risk, leveraging data and technology to deliver assurance and risk insights that improve processes and risk management in the present — and help prevent problems in the future.

PwC’s Internal Audit Modernization solution enables transformation of the internal audit function using our extensive experience, digitally upskilled talent, industry knowledge and access to subject matter specialists, products, digital assets and accelerators to modernize activities across the internal audit lifecycle. We deliver modernized internal audit sourcing and/or internal audit transformation projects through an agile, digitally enabled approach and framework.

Whatever your internal audit needs, we can meet you where you are on your journey, helping make sure you're harnessing the information needed to deliver greater business results now — and into the future.
