Remote Auditing

The corona pandemic turned the standard model of office work on its head. Companies were put into crisis management mode and employees were increasingly working from home. The rapid outbreak of the pandemic accelerated the trend towards teleworking in internal auditing as well.

This is the subject of the latest report of the IIA’s Global Perspectives and Insights series – „Remote Auditing: Challenges, Risks, Fraud, Technology, and Staff Morale,” that outlines the benefits and challenges of remote auditing, as well as the abilities auditors will need to successfully do their jobs in the post-pandemic environment — emotional intelligence, communications skills, business acumen, flexibility, agility, as well as imagination and curiosity.

The report is available in German and in English.
