Internal Audit

From Vision to Value, We’re Transforming Trust with Technology.

Internal Audit (IA) requirements are constantly evolving, yet constraints on resources can make it difficult to keep up. We help our clients to elevate their impact by infusing value at every stage of the internal audit process. We team with your IA function to deliver purpose driven, digitally powered internal audits leveraging automation, analytics, dynamic risk assessment, and agile methodology that align with your strategy. Let us help you anticipate risk and put the right processes and controls in place today to meet the challenges of the future.

IT internal audit

Our IT Internal Audit services professionals offer solutions to help clients extend their internal audit oversight and performance, addressing IT risks as well as broader organization-wide business risks, such as cybersecurity.

Through a cybersecurity assessment framework we are assisting Internal Audit functions with providing an objective assessment of existing and needed controls. We are also helping audit committees and boards recognize and address the diverse risks of the digital world. Stay one step ahead with a cyber risk management examination.

Technological advances and trends in advanced analytics, robotic process automation, and cognitive intelligence are rapidly reshaping business models, improving productivity, and enabling innovation in the way organizations operate and conduct business.

In a full outsourcing arrangement, Deloitte serves as the IA function. Deloitte’s Internal Audit services professionals help provide organizations with a greater level of assurance. We also offer insights and recommendations on business strategy execution and the redeployment of valuable resources toward achieving strategic goals and objectives.

In a cosourcing arrangement, we assist clients in building upon existing strengths while improving overall value. The client maintains control and responsibility for the day-to-day function while Deloitte provides “on-demand” advice, leading practices, and experienced professionals with industry and specialized business and/or technical capabilities.
