Internal audit and compliance perform similar, but distinct functions. Both groups need to work together to help ensure compliance with the most important laws and regulations and help organizations avoid significant fines, penalties, and repetitional risk. As part of your risk assessment procedures, you need to be scanning what's happening to other organizations and where governments are focusing enforcement actions.
