Internal auditing is a tedious process performed by someone who has an in-depth understanding of the internal audit activity of the business that is to be audited.  Among many others, the task of the internal auditor is to provide assurance that the goals and the objectives of the organization are met.  Internal Auditing is an independent, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization's operations. It helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes.
