About the Council

Internal audit’s remit is broader and more complex today than it has ever been. Auditors need new capabilities focused on risk, technology, analytics, and people skills. The chief audit executive’s critical governance role and relationship with the audit committee is central to internal audit’s value of providing assurance to the board. Internal audit partners with the businesses to identify key risks, drive digital transformation, and support agile development and operations.
