WHAT IS AN IT AUDIT?
An IT audit is the examination and evaluation of an organization’s information technology infrastructure, policies, and operations independently, objective assurance and consulting activity designed to add value and improve an organization’s operations. In order to determine if the information systems are safeguarding assets, maintaining data integrity, and operating effectively to achieve the organization’s goals or objectives, an IT Audit will bring a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, control, and governance processes. These reviews may be performed in conjunction with a financial statement audit, internal audit, or other form of attestation engagement.
The primary functions of an IT audit are to evaluate the systems that are in place to guard an organization’s information. Specifically, information technology audits are used to evaluate the organization’s ability to protect its information assets and to properly dispense information to authorized parties. The IT audit aims to evaluate the following:
• Will always the organization’s computer systems be available for the business when required? (known as availability)
• Will the information in the systems be disclosed only to authorized users? (known as security and confidentiality)
• Will the information provided by the system always be accurate, reliable, and timely? (measures the integrity)
