‘‘Digitalization and the effects on Internal Audit‘‘

How does the role of Internal Audit evolve in light of the disruptions caused by digitization?

Disruptive forces are causing organizations to consider transformation plays.  Businesses must deal with challenges caused by the digital revolution: the move to digital processes and business models; complex regulatory oversight; proliferation of social media and disruptive new technologies that promote increased connectivity and a demand for new skills. IA has to evaluate, if the function is ready to digitalize itself, to lead the “digital journey” for the organization and to take on the challenge to deliver more comprehensive solutions?

The presentation offers highlights on how internal audit functions need to act and respond to the digital revolution. It is designed to be provocative. Our Goal is to stimulate new thinking and challenge current paradigms. Each organization’s journey will be different and unique.
