Data Analytics – Internal Audit Success Stories in an Age of Constant Disruption
Internal audit departments evolve from a low to high maturity with the ability to deliver value with data analytics. Internal auditors will have to evolve to reach a higher level of maturity, not just with resources, skills, etc.; but, with system functionality and automation to provide additional value. The maturity process requires an agility that incorporates a natural level of disruption to internal audit by external and internal forces. With data analytics there is an efficient mechanism to spot those disruptions and provide solutions to minimize loss or optimize results. This presentation will provide examples of data analytics strategy for internal auditors at different maturity levels to help manage expectations of leadership and increase their agility.
