There are many definitions of ethics, morals, or ethos, but in philosophy, they all aim to promote a flourishing life of individuals and communities “with and for others in just institutions”, as Paul Ricœur put it. In the business context however, ethics mainly refers to behaviours that comply with established values or codes of conduct.


Internal auditing can play a significant role in fostering a culture of ethical reflection that goes beyond mere compliance. By promoting a proactive approach to ethics and the concept of "ethics by design", organisations can integrate ethical considerations right from the outset into their corporate cultures, work processes, or digital & AI applications.


This culture of ongoing ethical reflection becomes even more crucial in our current civilisation, which Yuval Noah Harari says is already hacked by artificial intelligence. Algorithms and deep learning AI models that power applications like ChatGPT provide new ways of committing and detecting fraud or cheating.
