Comparisons
•
Risk maturity
•
•
Thomson Reuters: 50% reported that their organisation’s risk management function
was non-existent, in development or immature.
• The IIA: 45% of organisations reported that they felt the level of risk maturity within
their organisation was at the early stages of implementation, in development or nonexistent.
Skills and competencies
•
Both surveys show the wide range of skills that internal auditors need which span
both technical and business skills. Thomson Reuters commented that internal
auditors may need additional training particularly in qualitative areas such as culture
and corporate governance.
