90’s High 5 for Auditors

Richard Chambers, the president and CEO of the IIA, noted 5 defining events and their impact on internal auditing in the 90’s decade.

  1. Adoption of the Professional Practices Framework (2002)

  3. Cynthia Cooper Named a Time Magazine “Person of the Year” (2002) – whistleblower at WorldCom (I had to look it up myself)
  4. Release of The PCAOB’s Auditing Standard Number 2 (2004) – which was then superseded by AS 5
  5. Global Economic Crisis (2008-2009)
