Organisations are rapidly evolving through innovation and technological advancements. Emerging technologies are redefining business models, products and processes and creating vast opportunities but also new areas of risk. The role of Internal Audit (IA) is vital in providing independent insights into the adequacy and effectiveness of risks and controls for the Audit Committee and Board, but IA can also play a key role as trusted risk and controls advisor to the business embarking on emerging technology journeys.
