Pulse of Internal Audit

​The Audit Executive Center has gathered insight from leaders in the profession through the annual Pulse of Internal Audit Survey since 2011. Each survey collects information about established and emerging issues, and other topics of importance to the profession and internal audit management.

The survey results are compiled in separate comprehensive reports exclusively for North America and global internal audit practitioners and their stakeholders. Beginning in 2016, additional in-depth reports called Pulse Solutions were introduced to provide CAEs with information to address Pulse findings. Access the Global Pulse of Internal Audit reports.

Continuing this trend, the 2019 Pulse survey focuses on the hidden risks in several timely and important areas: 

  • ​Cybersecurity and data privacy
  • Board and management relationships
  • Emerging and atypical risks
  • Use of third parties

The Pulse of Internal Audit survey is now open.

PARTICIPATE NOW​

To ensure your feedback is included, we are asking that you complete the survey by Friday, Oct. 19. Results will be made available in early 2019.​
