Transforming Internal Audit Through Data Analytics
Session Overview
The explosion of technology developments and resulting volumes of data generated in many companies today have given rise to a whole new set of business risks that cannot be managed using traditional internal audit methodologies and manual sampling techniques. Data analytics is advancing in a significant way as leading internal audit departments leverage analytics to examine, sort, and transform data into useful and understandable information, which produce insights and foresights into organizational risks.  By leveraging the power of analytics, internal audit can address current and emerging risks quickly, and draw conclusions that help company decision-makers take action more quickly, more confidently, and with deeper insights, thereby delivering enhanced value. More specifically, internal audit analytics can help drive a more effective, risk-based planning process by: determining which entities have greater risk and should receive more attention; and improving the efficiency, coverage, and value of discrete audit reviews.
