Organizations contract or hire individuals with specific skills to conduct internal audits to ensure their organizations are following their documented policies, procedures, and processes. In addition, federal mandates are placed on specific organizations within industries requiring continuous audits, requiring organizations to contract outside auditors to work with their internal auditors in determining the health of the organization.
Create a minimum 8 slidePowerPointÂ® presentation (not including the title and reference slides) with speaker notes that describes the processes typically followed within your chosen organization for internal and external audits, including the security related areas covered, how the audit is performed, the differences between internal and external audits, as well as discussing the value that audits can add to the organization.
Include appropriate references to support your analysis.
Submit your presentation using the Assignment Files tab.
