Reality: A well organised Internal audit function is boon for any company

Myth: Internal Auditors are only fault finders

Reality: Internal auditors are watch dogs. They not just find faults but also provide solutions for the process lapses


Myth: Internal Audit is an easy Job

Reality A lot of people argue that finding a fault in some process is very easy but doing the same task on a daily basis is tough. My point is, how can an Internal auditor find a loophole in a process if he doesn’t understand it completely.

Myth : Internal Auditors revolves around finance only :

Reality: Internal audit basically covers each and every aspect of the organisation. If you are keeping yourself limited to finance, then probably you are not exactly doing internal Audit
