Improve Transparency. Reduce Costs. Optimize Business.
Seventy-five percent of audit departments learn about changing business processes too late, as revealed in a Gartner survey of 100+ audit executives, even though 67% of project teams agree that delivery of audit foresight meaningfully contributes to risk reduction.
Internal audit (IA) functions help decision-makers protect organizational assets and reputations along with supporting operational sustainability.
However, the internal audit process has changed over time. It is no longer just a way to assess quality but also a strategy to drive value throughout the organization.
The increasing interconnectedness and complexity of projects within organizations can lead to disruptions in existing controls or the need for new ones.
As a result, the audit needs to improve its ability to anticipate risks related to new or changing processes before they can materialize. In other words, an audit must improve its delivery of foresight.
When internal audit provides foresight as processes are changing, project teams in the business report audit meaningfully contributes to risk reduction (67%), significantly improves control design (62%), significantly helps anticipate risks (60%), and identifies issues before they have a material negative impact (60%).

The current business climate and risk landscape are volatile, which makes it vexing to protect your company.
