Internal Audit and Enterprise Risk Management
Internal Audit is one of many mechanisms at the company with the aim of continuous improvement. We focus on business processes and the technologies that support them, looking for risks that could harm the company. We have a variety of skillsets on our team, including finance, technology and other backgrounds. We are part of the Finance organization and report to the CFO, Brian Olsavsky. The VP of Audit takes direction from and provides updates to the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors.
