FIS is the world’s largest global provider dedicated to banking and payment technologies. In this type of business environment, where the data security stakes are so high, it is imperative for internal auditors to be viewed as valued and trusted business partners – and at FIS that is exactly the case.
In this profile, Katy Thompson, Chief Audit Executive, believes that proficiency with data mining and analytics and building specific subject-matter expertise are key trends. Also important is developing truly deep knowledge of the industry, the organization and the external factors impacting the business. She identifies three essential goals for the FIS internal audit team: coverage, building skills, and data analytics.
