Time for Internal Audit to Focus on Resilience

Internal audit is well positioned to assess resilience risk and embed resilience in organizations. This is demonstrated in the new white paper „Are We Ready? It’s Time for Internal Audit to Focus on Resilience Amid Extreme Change“ from the IIA in collaboration with Protiviti.

The paper helps chief audit executives better understand the importance of business resilience in the context of the company’s overall strategy. It outlines ways for internal auditors to drive a resilience-based focus in their organizations. This can involve embedding resilience in audit objectives or participating in process and organizational redesign and systems implementation.

Internal audit can also contribute to organizational transformation by raising essential questions, such as „How open are our people to change?“ „Are we developing the skills necessary to compete and succeed in a dynamic environment?“
