The Digital Grapevine: Social Media and the Role of Internal Audit


No longer confined to areas of entertainment and life management, social media and social software have become an integral part of the digital business landscape. With more and more users linking, liking, friending and following, how can Internal Audit (IA) help assess and mitigate risks associated with social business?

  • Brand and reputation damage
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Information leakage
  • Third-party risk
  • Governance risk

In each of these categories, IA can play a critical role in understanding the potential risks of engaging in social business. IA can also help to monitor and manage threats and strike a balance between risks and opportunities.
