  • The transformation of internal audit: Hear from a chief audit executive of a Fortune 500 company and an EY executive on leading practices for internal audit teams, especially as internal audit teams embark on adapting, innovating, and transforming the internal audit function. Learn how internal audit priorities are evolving to meet the needs of companies, boards and audit committees.
