Module 1

Recent Trends in Internal Audit

As a third line of defence the internal audit function has a fundamental role in overseeing the effective performance of the organization’s overall governance framework. The role of internal audit has been continuously evolving to becoming a strategic partner to the Board of Directors playing a key role in continuously improving the organizations internal control environment.
Today many internal audit functions are conducting internal audit reviews that a few years back where not to be found anywhere near the internal audit plan such as auditing culture, strategy, board performance, governance, conduct etc… and this is only further conformance as to what extent this function is maturing every year.
However, unfortunately, till today, the true role of the Internal Audit function is either not practiced correctly by internal audit practitioners or misunderstood by many of the stakeholders that have a direct relationship with the Internal Audit function. Therefore, this program aims to focus on the strategic value of the internal audit function to enable participant’s not only to obtain a deeper understanding of the nature of work relating to this function but also enabling them to better promote and communicate the value add this profession has to offer.
