Exploring the global risk landscape from internal audit’s perspective.
2024 Global Risk in Focus
What’s in this report from the Internal Audit Foundation:
The Internal Audit Foundation, part of The Institute of Internal Auditors, shares its first-ever “Global Risk in Focus” report series, underpinned by surveys with internal audit leaders across Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and North America to get a pulse on the greatest risks affecting their regions.
Here are some of the key findings:
- Cybersecurity (73%), human capital (51%), business continuity (47%), regulatory change (39%) and digital disruption (34%) are the top five risks that chief audit executives (CAEs) see currently impacting their organizations across the globe.
- Over the next three years, CAEs across all regions expect risk levels to increase dramatically for digital disruption (34% to 55%) and climate change (19% to 39%).
- North American respondents view cybersecurity (85%), human capital (65%) and regulatory change (43%) as the top three risks currently affecting their organizations.
