Audit Services

NBA IA

NETBankAudit follows FFIEC guidelines for outsourcing internal audit functions. We believe that audit and assessment services should provide “value added” management and operational solutions and guidance beyond simply checking off a regulatory or best practice requirement.

All audits are risk-based and tailored to your specific institution to obtain maximum efficiency and value.  Our unique approach combines risk-based audit planning with the bundling of services to allow management and the Audit Committee top-shelf solutions at affordable prices.

The following internal auditing services can be offered as bundled outsourced services, individual outsourced services or as supplemental services to existing internal audit programs:
