Internal auditors are integral members of the accounting field. A Certified Internal Auditor operates with a specific code of ethics that ensures they work up to a certain level of professional standards. Internal auditing is a career that can incorporate risk management, risk assessment, financial reporting, creating audit plans, performing operational audits, and ensuring processes are up to national and international standards.
The internal audit function is an extremely valuable activity that entities can utilize to attain assurance about a company’s achievement of its objectives. In this podcast, Jim Hallinan – who has over 30 years of experience in various capacities in the internal auditing field – provides his definition of internal auditing, in relation to the various ways in which an effective internal audit group can provide value to an organization’s operations and effect control processes. Additionally, Jim shares various ways of structuring internal audit activity, and how internal audit departments can be proactive in supporting other departments and business processes, and the company’s operations. While no entity is too small to obtain the benefits from a well-tailored approach to internal audit provided assurance, Jim’s insights on how to achieve these benefits in organizations of all sizes will be very beneficial to all financial professionals.
