The dynamics of today's business environment are driving organizations to seek new ways to improve their competitive advantages. Many business leaders are recognizing that assessing and managing enterprise risks is an integral part of maintaining a competitive edge, and that excessive risk taking can adversely affect organizations and could even lead to their collapse. However, many companies are struggling to manage and sometimes even to identify the complex risks they face. Therefore, demand for high quality internal audit services has grown exponentially as the global awareness of the importance of good corporate governance, effective risk management and appropriate internal controls continues to grow.
