Internal auditors must be ever vigilant when evaluating audit areas and an organization's overall corporate culture. The inability to challenge the status quo when something goes awry is like silent acceptance of inappropriate behavior. The concepts and strategies in this book will help internal auditors assess, evaluate, identify, and mitigate the risk for fraud in their organizations.
