The role of internal auditors is evolving and their scope of work is no longer limited to audit management. Through their insights gained across the business enterprise, internal auditors are in a better position to help shape business strategy and increase value proposition in their organizations. But with today's fluctuating regulatory landscape and the evolving risks and threats, organizations need to step back to re-evaluate the effectiveness of their internal audit processes and efficiency in mitigating critical challenges in future.
