Is your Audit Function Primed to Tackle Today and Tomorrow’s Complex Risk Environment?  

The rapid changes in regulatory, technology and business environment and the introduction of new regulations globally have had a significant impact on organisations. Throughout the business, all functions are expected to be nimble and timely and Internal Audit is now being asked to do a lot more than before. Facing a volatile landscape, audit needs to transform to be forward-looking and anticipatory in their work, a slight departure from its current cycles and processes.  

Agile auditing is a mindset that targets stakeholder needs with accelerated and shorter audit cycles. Thus, allowing audit to deliver timely, impactful and relevant insights on current issues and risks. With an agile approach, internal audit can mold itself into a future-proof function and tailor its audit plans to meet the needs of the business promptly. The iterative nature of project sprints will allow audits to be focused on critical risks and red flags are detected quickly.
