The Institute of Internal Auditors has developed the following definition:
Internal auditing is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organisation’s operations. It helps an organisation accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control and governance processes.
Your eGuide is fully cross-referenced to the IIA’s 2017 International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF) and has one simple aim:

The online resource means this is a readily accessible staff training resource, aimed at everyone who works for, or is associated with an organisation where business risk needs to be properly understood and managed. The material is relevant to all business sectors; public, private and not-for-profit organizations – globally.
