Harness the Power of Data Analytics to 
Optimize Your Internal Audit Function

Today's chief audit executives face unique challenges stemming from the frenetic pace of market changes, emerging technologies, and other environmental dynamics. While cybersecurity, privacy, fraud, and third-party risks are obvious vulnerabilities, it's the as-yet unknown trends and anomalies that are keeping these executives, board members, and management awake at night.

The good news is that data, the building blocks of a performance-driven organization, can be a game changer for the internal audit function. By strategically harnessing the power of data and advanced technologies, internal auditors can increase the speed and efficiency in which data is examined to more accurately and comprehensively inform the identification, management, and reporting of risk.

In addition, embedding a powerful data analytics program into the auditing function enables:
  • Laser-sharp audits founded on the most up-to-date data patterns, trends, and relationships, as well as anomalies
  • Continuous auditing and monitoring routines that allow for more agile problem-solving
  • More accurate audit coverage, fraud detection, and compliance
  • Heightened audit efficiencies and cost savings
  • Enhanced organizational awareness related to data availability and governance
  • Satisfaction of third-party expectations and regulations relating to data analytics capabilities
  • The recognition of internal audit as a value-added agent of change, with a stronghold on the current risk landscape and informed perspective of future challenges 
Yet, despite these potential benefits and opportunities, many organizations are at a standstill, unsure of where or even how to embed data analytics into their IA functions. To get there, a re-tooling of talent and a shift in corporate culture are needed. But this isn't the only barrier to overcome, and indeed, the constraints to transforming to a data-driven audit function may at first glance seem daunting.

Eugene M. Principato
The Marketing Difference LLC
We sometimes get frustrated waiting for business to happen, especially when we spend a lot of time networking at the Chamber and other business organizations. It's often said that "patience is a virtue," and sometimes we just have to be patient for good things to happen. Let me give you a case in point. Our company has been a Chamber member for over 10 years, and during that time we've made a lot of connections with prospective customers and business associates. A few years ago, in a casual conversation at a Chamber event, one of our longtime business associates asked if we'd be a sub-contractor on a project they'd just landed with a new client in Pennsylvania. We agreed to help them, completed our piece of the marketing project, and ended up with a new customer relationship in a new industry! We'd built a relationship with this Chamber member over the years, and the connection paid off in the long run.
