Protiviti deal aims to raise internal auditors’ profile

The internal audit profession received a boost to raise its profile as the Chartered Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) and consulting and internal audit firm Protiviti joined forces.

Protiviti has been awarded IIA partner status, and they will work with the institute across a variety of activities aimed at raising the profile of the internal audit profession.

Tim Brooke, MD of Protiviti UK, said: “As the independent voice of the profession, the IIA is leading the way to ensure internal audit’s role and value are understood by all those within and outside organisations who have an interest in improving risk management and promoting strong corporate governance.”

His comments were echoed by Ian Peters, chief executive of IIA, who said he hoped the partnership would help develop the profession further and raise its profile.
