The Institute of Internal Auditors have recommended that Governance be a key part of their remit. As a result, Internal Audit (IA) needs to raise the bar on this area. There is an expectation that IA will challenge the Governance processes including the risk appetite of the organisation. Auditors will therefore need to review the business culture, and the Board’s commitment to Corporate Governance. Internal audit clearly needs a much more holistic role in this regard. This is precisely the focus of this course.
