The most comprehensive guide to internal audit available, this book is a must-have for internal audit departments, an ideal resource for external advisers and essential reading for those studying internal audit. Internal audit is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organisation's operations, detect risks and minimise their impact on an organisation. Using this book, internal auditors can be confident they help their organisation accomplish its objectives through a systematic, disciplined approach to risk management, control and governance processes. The second edition is vastly expanded and includes the very latest Institute of Internal Auditors Standards. This update also takes account of the trend towards risk-based internal auditing: whilst boards expect internal audit to assure the adequacy of internal control systems, they are increasingly asking the internal audit team to focus on the most important, relevant issues to the business. Internal audit now more than ever has to juggle risk and control with the need to be pragmatic and efficient. This handbook covers the theory, methods and practice of internal auditing, and includes chapters on specialist areas such as IT and environmental auditing. As well as looking at the complete process - from planning to report writing and beyond - this title examines the principles and purpose of the internal audit, taking in independence, objectivity and quality assurance. The handbook's structure corresponds to the structure of the Institute of Internal Auditors' Standards - which have been adopted throughout the world including within the UK and are the foundations of the international Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) and UK examinations (PIIA and MIIA). Apart from being a practitioner guide for use anywhere in the world, the handbook is also an essential textbook for trainees taking these exams. New to this edition: The Internal Auditor's Handbook covers the new IIA Standards. This book takes full account of these large changes which include: * Over 50% more content within the mandatory Institute of Internal Auditors Standards - by far the largest revision since 2001 * Significant transfers of content from the strongly recommended Practice Advisories into the mandatory Standards * More demanding requirements on the essential characteristics of an internal audit activity * Greater stress on governance processes and internal audit's relationships with the board * Greater clarity through the extensive use of 'must' rather than 'should'
