Chief Audit Executives Council

Apply Here

Corporate transformation, new uses of technology and the need for different capabilities in the internal audit function are among the challenges facing Chief Audit Executives today.  Greater data analysis capability within internal audit will continue to drive an improved internal control environment and greater efficiencies. In its key governance role to provide assurance on risks to boards and senior leadership, internal audit leaders must partner to a greater degree with other assurance functions, including HSE, compliance and risk management.  As an organisation that reaches across every business line, internal audit has the opportunity to propagate best practices. The Council of Chief Audit Executives provides audit professionals with a forum to develop successful responses to their highly visible role, and share best practices for implementing effective auditing procedures.
