Internal Audit

Boards of Directors and executive management are increasingly demanding that internal audit extend beyond focusing on backward-looking compliance assessments or evaluating non-core business processes.  Internal audit functions are being challenged to create, preserve and enhance organizational value by focusing on risks that matter to forward-looking strategic objectives, and at the same time, provide meaningful insight into improving current operations and business processes.

Bennett Thrasher’s internal audit methodology results in audit plans that are tailored to your organizational priorities and relevant to identified risks to your strategic objectives.  Our diverse capabilities allow us to provide you with assurance and advisory expertise specific to the objectives of each internal audit across all facets of business processes and IT.  We can support you in all aspects of an internal audit function, including:

  • Performing a risk assessment to identify and prioritize relevant risks to the organization
  • Developing an audit plan of prioritized internal audits based on identified risks
  • Planning and executing internal audits according to the audit plan
  • Preparing and presenting final reports reflecting the results of each internal audit
  • Monitoring the status of efforts to remediate identified issues and validating remediation activities

You can trust Bennett Thrasher to provide you with assurance and advice through objective, data-driven analysis ultimately designed to improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes.  Our service offerings include:
