As organisations and the world, they operate in become more complex, so IA is gaining a steadily higher profile. Internal auditors, along with executive management, non-executive management and the external auditors are a critical part of the top-level governance of any organisation.

An internal auditor’s knowledge of the management of risk enables them to act as consultant and catalyst for improvement in an organisation’s practices.
