Overview

Internal Audits are investigations which primarily evaluate the processes for fulfilling requirements and guidelines. They are conducted by internal auditors and take place in irregularly planned intervals or in a case of doubt. After an Internal Audit has been completed, an periodic and scheduled audit planning takes place in which the discoveries are recorded and processed to ensure an optimal follow-up process.

Challenges

Organizations today are required to comply with an increasing number of regulations, policies and procedures. This drives the need for ongoing auditing in organizations. The traditional regulation/policy/procedure-specific audit software solutions have become less effective, as they are not integrative and hence can create inconsistencies and even contradictory audit processes. Executive officers are specifically required to demonstrate effective internal audit practices, and to ensure corporate transparency and visibility into the business. The internal audit process is continuous and needs to be repeated periodically and closely monitored. Management is personally responsible for an adequate level of internal audit, and this responsibility requires significant management attention and allocation of time and effort.
