Internal Audit is a key component in any organization’s plans to maximize the efficiency of operations and proactively secure their assets (cash, intellectual property, data, etc.). It enables you to stay ahead of internal and external threats by continuously identifying and correcting vulnerabilities through a systematic and risk-based approach.

This allows us to customize our Internal Audit plans accordingly.
Geographically dispersed organizations tend to have inconsistent policies and procedures across offices in different countries. This is often necessary to operate effectively, but it also represents inherent risks. This case study describes how one international nonprofit conducted an internal audit to effectively minimize the organizational risk associated with key business processes administered at headquarters — as well as at its field offices across the world.
