The Remote Auditor: Challenges, Opportunities, and New Ways of Working

The Remote Auditor: Challenges, Opportunities, and New Ways of Working

What will internal audit look like moving forward? As with nearly every type of business around the world, the definition of “normal operations” has been redefined for internal audit as a result of the pandemic. Within internal audit functions, audit plans were altered, site visits were put on hold, and new ways of carrying out daily responsibilities emerged. Organizations have permanently altered many of their processes and procedures — but to what extent? And how do they plan to support the profession going forward?

These questions and more are explored in The Remote Auditor: Challenges, Opportunities, and New Ways of Working , a joint IAF and AuditBoard report that illuminates new models of working, maintaining healthy relationships and organizational culture, key technologies, and the skills needed for success.
