With the passage of the EU’s AI Act — which has been likened to the GDPR for artificial intelligence — it is essential for businesses to address the impact of AI on their future strategies and operational frameworks. Internal auditors must understand the effects of such rapid technological advancement on their companies’ risk landscape – as well as the potential opportunities cutting-edge technology presents for enhancing audit processes. Balancing AI’s potential as a key catalyst for growth with the growing risks these technologies bring will require internal audit to step into a leadership role in helping their businesses prepare for compliance with the new and evolving AI regulations.
