The Internal Audit Foundation released a new report in collaboration with Crowe. “Privacy and Data Protection, Part 2: Internal Auditors’ Views on Risks, Responsibilities, and Opportunities” is the second in a three-part series on this critical topic.
The purpose of this report is to present findings from surveys and field interviews of chief audit executives (CAEs) and audit directors to explore how internal audit as a profession is responding to privacy and data protection issues.
Detailed examination of the results provided a number of insights that internal audit professionals can use to reflect on their own organizations’ preparedness and effectiveness in managing risks associated with privacy and data protection.
Key takeaways include:
- Data privacy roles and responsibilities.
- Data privacy as a material risk.
- Internal auditors’ views of program effectiveness.
- Internal auditors’ most critical concerns.
- How internal auditors can add value.
