Ely, England, 11 June 2012 – As a profession, internal audit sits somewhere between having a low profile that is barely mentioned in governance regulations, through to making a key contribution to better corporate transparency by improving how risk is perceived and addressed. Swanson on Internal Auditing: ‘Raising the Bar’, is a wealth of knowledge on internal auditing all in one place, providing definitive guidance on implementing and developing the internal audit function, and it has now been selected by both the ISACA and The IIA bookstores.
A must-read for corporate executives, accountants, IT staff, board members, security and auditing practitioners, and more, the book provides concise commentary on strategic issues regarding the way internal auditing is established, planned and performed.
The importance of internal auditing is here to stay, and the profession has now become complex and critical enough that you may need all the help you can get. The comprehensive, yet concise approach Swanson on Internal Auditing: ‘Raising the Bar’ takes, makes it the ideal reference manual to help frame the problems internal auditors face and guide them through solutions.
This ultimate guide to navigating and improving your internal audit function has now been recognised by both ISACA, a worldwide association of information security professionals dedicated to the audit, control, and security of information systems and, The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), the only professional body focused exclusively on internal auditing. Both organisations have selected Swanson on Internal Auditing: ‘Raising the Bar’ for their global bookstores to enable their members to purchase this fantastic book.
Written by Dan Swanson, a 26-year internal audit veteran, who was formerly the Director of Professional Practices at the Institute of Internal Auditors, the book provides commentaries on the wide variety of topics that the author has examined over the years. Many of the subjects Dan discusses first appeared in articles he has written for Compliance Week. On 6 June, Dan led a webinar presentation on How to Implement a Robust Audit Framework for MetricStream with over 230 attendees, further reinforcing the importance of the audit function.
