with Internal Audit Management

Connected Risk® Internal Audit Management is a state-of-the-art software solution designed to streamline and enhance internal audit processes. One of its core functionalities is the management of the Audit Universe, which serves as the foundation for a well-structured and organized internal audit program.

Connected Risk® offers a user-friendly and centralized platform for managing the Audit Universe, enabling internal audit teams to efficiently navigate through vast amounts of data and make well-informed decisions.

What is the Audit Universe?

The Audit Universe refers to the complete set of auditable entities within an organization. These entities may include departments, business units, processes, projects, or any other components that need to be assessed for risks, controls, and compliance. Effectively managing the Audit Universe is crucial for internal auditors to prioritize and plan their audit activities, ensuring they focus on the areas that are most critical to the organization.

Connected Risk® Internal Audit Management and Managing the Audit Universe

Connected Risk® offers a user-friendly and centralized platform for managing the Audit Universe, enabling internal audit teams to efficiently navigate through vast amounts of data and make well-informed decisions.

Here’s how Connected Risk® facilitates the process:

Comprehensive Entity Repository

Our software provides a centralized repository to capture and maintain information about auditable entities. Each entity is categorized, allowing auditors to classify them based on risk levels, business units, or other relevant attributes.

Risk Assessment and Prioritization

Connected Risk® allows internal auditors to conduct risk assessments for each entity within the Audit Universe. The assessment can consider various factors, such as inherent risk, control effectiveness, and impact. Based on these evaluations, the system automatically prioritizes entities for audit planning.

Continuous Monitoring

With Connected Risk®, audit teams can continuously monitor changes and developments within the Audit Universe. The platform alerts auditors to emerging risks, regulatory updates, or significant alterations in auditable entities, ensuring proactive risk management.

Audit Planning and Scheduling

Our software assists in creating comprehensive audit plans based on the prioritized entities. It helps allocate resources effectively, optimize audit schedules, and ensure timely completion of audit engagements.

Collaboration and Reporting

Connected Risk® fosters collaboration among audit team members, enabling seamless information sharing and ensuring everyone stays aligned with audit objectives. Additionally, the platform generates detailed reports and dashboards for stakeholders, providing valuable insights into the organization's risk landscape.

Regulatory Compliance

The software is designed to align with industry standards and best practices, ensuring compliance with relevant regulations and guidelines during the audit process.

Your internal audit function is part of a broader risk ecosystem.

The Connected Risk platform, which underpins your solution, can draw upon this data using advanced data modelling and mapping capabilities that also facilitates a greater degree of standardization.

The solution maximizes the value these capabilities bring. We offer flexible assessment matrices that draw on data from any risk and compliance functions you choose to connect with. Based on the intelligence these connections provide, you can apply mid-cycle directional changes in your assessment plan to ensure it remains focused on what matters most at any given time. 

Simply for your organization's internal audits.
