May is International Internal Audit Awareness Month!
The Internal Audit Department provides a range of services designed to help the institution meet its objectives. One of the department’s key roles is to monitor risks and ensure that the controls in place are adequate to mitigate those risks.
What is Internal Audit?
The Institute of Internal Audit (The IIA) defines internal audit as an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization’s operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes.
