It's safe to say that popular culture hasn't been kind to internal auditors. The few references to the profession in television, movies, and books either confuse them with accountants or portray them as disliked corporate stooges or nerdy paper-pushers.
This non-existent or negative portrayal so bothered Wa'el Bibi, a former internal auditor and current internal audit consultant, that he decided to do something about it. Bibi authored a short book of fiction, The Internal Auditor, which includes a hero internal audit protagonist who draws on his full complex of talents to uncover a burgeoning corporate fraud and save the day.
