2020s: COVID-19, Disruption, and the Decade Ahead for Internal Audit

The first year of the new decade is already one of the most disruptive in a century. A global pandemic, geopolitical tensions, and another financial crisis are creating the “perfect risk management storm.” In this environment, it is essential for internal auditors at all levels to demonstrate agility and resilience if they are to protect and enhance value in their organizations now and in the decade ahead.
