The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) has officially launched its Audit Executive Center, responding to its membership's call for more targeted information to help chief audit executives (CAEs) enhance their value to their organisations and stakeholders such as executive management, boards of directors, and audit committees.
Created by The IIA with direct, hands-on guidance from leading audit professionals, the Audit Executive Center is a portal to a vast array of services designed to provide CAEs with everything they need to help them stay empowered, connected, and relevant.
Through the Center, CAEs and their audit staff can access benchmarking studies, thought leadership, peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, online discussion forums, exclusive networking events, reports that identify and analyze emerging risks, information on leading practices, cutting-edge topical research, and news publications.
The centerpiece of the Audit Executive Center is its website, www.theiia.org/cae, which is populated with practical up-to-date research, reports, and publications; houses a collection of downloadable tools and templates such as balanced scorecards and audit programs; and provides instant access to thought leadership on best practices and emerging risks via the site's discussion forums.
“Having access to other CAEs to share best practices and talk about emerging trends and risks will be a tremendous advantage for me and my audit team,” says Denny Beran, CIA, CCSA, senior vice president of audit for the JCPenney Company. “It will also be extremely beneficial to have a website where we can stay connected to and stay on top of topics and issues, which enables us to provide value to our management team and the audit committee.”
