Important of IT Audit
In terms of responding to IT risks, according to LIFARS, the importance of IT audits includes two levels. The first is to prevent risks: IT audits can help companies identify and prevent risks in the IT systems that support the business. Finally, it can also help companies audit IT systems to avoid possible risks from external compliance.
An information technology audit, or information systems audit, is an examination of the management controls within an Information technology (IT) infrastructure. As a result, the evaluation of obtained evidence determines if the information systems are safeguarding assets, maintaining data integrity. It also provides an indication if they are operating effectively to achieve the organisation’s goals or objectives.
How often do I need to do the IT Audit?
Therefore it is recommended and is a best practice to undertake periodic external reviews of IT. The review should consider efficiency, costs, service levels, risk profile and business alignment. These may include a full IT Audit and Review or specific components of IT.
