Businesses face an increasing array of complex risks that require highly trained, skilled and focused internal audit resources to adequately identify and evaluate how well risks are being managed. Organizations are rarely able to staff for all of the new risks they are confronted by in today’s environment. In addition, many organizations need resources to fill short-term needs as situations arise that can’t be adequately addressed with onboard resources. Internal audit functions that do not use specialized outside resources may, in fact, be exposing their organization to even greater risks through sub-optimal internal audit capability and performance.
