Learn About Topical Requirements

The IIA is developing Topical Requirements as a new element of the International Professional Practices Framework (IPPF), which also includes the Global Internal Audit Standards™ and Global Guidance.

Topical Requirements include mandatory requirements for evaluating and assessing the effectiveness of governance, risk management, and control processes, as well as nonmandatory considerations to help internal auditors validate those requirements.

The first draft Topical Requirement is on the topic of cybersecurity.

The Global Guidance Council is currently reviewing the comments about this draft received during a 90-exposure period. A new version is underway to address this feedback
