Internal Audit Transformation Services

In Consulting

EY Internal Audit (IA) services can help internal audit functions build and maintain trust and assure business risks are managed effectively. We believe in forward-looking, technology-enabled IA transformation with equal focus on people, process and purpose for long-term value.


Your business challenge

Organizations face increasing opportunities and challenges from client expectations, technology advancements, changing market and regulatory landscapes. In this environment, internal audit plays an important role in helping leadership navigate a spectrum of business risks.

Following traditional audit approaches is increasingly difficult in providing adequate assurance coverage and relevant business insights to stakeholders. Audit executives are challenged to answer these questions:

  • How can we provide higher value and reduced assurance costs, given the evolving business and technology landscape?
  • How can we be proactive in identifying emerging risks and organizational capability blind spots?
  • How can we provide value-adding actionable insights and answer questions that have not been addressed before?
  • How do we define a vision for an IA function that leverages human business and subject-matter expertise and technology automation?

Solution benefits

Our services, supported by EY Virtual Internal Auditor (EY VIA), helps companies transform their internal audit function holistically (people, process and technology) to build and maintain trust. Beneficial outcomes include:

  • Improved operational efficiencies and cost-effectiveness
  • Deeper insights needed to build trust through transformation
