An IIA global survey to gain a clearer perspective of the internal audit profession and its professionals.
The report captures the breadth and depth of internal auditing and the nuances of industries, sectors, and regions with feedback from more than 3,600 auditors in 159 locations.
The results reveal regional differences within a vibrant and diverse profession that’s not only broadly involved in traditional activities like compliance, risk, and fraud but also adding value for stakeholders through governance, sustainability, and IT/cybersecurity engagements. The report examines how internal audit functions are positioned differently within entities, explores how a function’s reporting line correlates with its funding and dives deeper into other regional differences.
Within the report are 12 action items outlining opportunities for improvement and continued growth.
