Internal audit analytics

Shift your internal audit analytics program into drive

Internal audit continues to search for opportunities to provide deeper insights and value across the organization to address rising pressure from stakeholders, increased regulations, and a dynamic business landscape. To that end, 82% of internal audit functions surveyed in PwC’s 2017 State of the Internal Audit Profession Study have increased their investment in data mining and data analytics to facilitate monitoring of key trends and support continuous auditing. However, many functions are finding their analytics programs stalled and in need of a jump start.

We bring a combination of audit, data analytics, technology, and business knowledge to identify patterns, trends, and anomalous behavior using data. This leads to richer business insights and enables internal audit to position themselves more strategically within the organization.
