What is Integrated Assurance?

Integrated Assurance is a term that has become common parlance over the last 5 or 6 years. The origins of the concept were the UK government monitoring of the London Olympics. It was such a complex programme with so many governance bodies wanting to satisfy themselves that everything was going well that people with in the programme were almost professional interviewees.

However, there is little definition around what integrated assurance actually is, for those of you that have an interest in this, we have found this useful article by KPMG that provides a useful overview of the “Three lines of defence” concept.
