If you already have an internal audit function, do you consider it is adding real value to your organisation?

Do you receive robust independent reporting at your Board that confirms your internal controls are appropriately designed and implemented effectively so mitigating your key business risks?  If not, have you considered the need to establish an internal audit function? 

Internal audit has always been one of the cornerstones of corporate governance. Recent events have increased its profile as Boards have become more aware of the importance of understanding risk and regulators are demanding improved control to protect customers.
