Ethics: Internal Auditor under pressure

For further details about the recording of this event please contact

Session Overview:

The recent SOPAC survey 2022 has reported around 14% of internal auditors in Australia were sanctioned for unfavourable reports.  This has highlighted the seldomly discussed problem underlying the work of the Internal Auditors.  A recent survey by Deloitte in North America shows a 55% of CAEs were directed to omit or modify their audit findings while 32% were asked to audit low-risk areas. 

On the other hand, the IIA Code of Ethics requires internal auditors to comply with Objectivity and Independence. 

This webinar reflects on some analyses about the issues of internal audit under pressure and examines what the IIA advises.  The objective of the webinar is to bring out the significance of the issue which undermines the internal audit profession.  Much more needs to be done.   

What I will learn:

  • Some relevant global research findings
  • Reporting lines, tension and culture
  • IIA advices
  • What IIA Australia is doing

Who should attend:

  • Members who sit on their organisation’s Audit and Risk Committee or are involved in their organisation’s internal audit functions
