An information technology audit or information systems audit is an examination of the management controls within an information technology infrastructure and IT processes.
The potentially catastrophic events such as loosing data, loss of systems for extended period of time, malware, hackers, etc. pose a serious threat to organizations that are investing billions of dollars in their computer systems, databases, etc. This dependence on complex computing and large-scale data schemes has led organizations around the globe to recognize how IT auditors can help them understand the constantly shifting risks of the information age. IT auditors follow all the same ethical and independence parameters as financial auditors, but their focus is on the governance of IT systems and processes.
Due to ever increasing complexity of technologies and in turn IT Audit function , there is a need for several specialized IT auditors with expertise in specific areas, and IT internal audit departments are finding it difficult to staff IT auditors.
One solution is to outsource, which enables organizations to engage IT audit personnel on an as-needed basis, rather than incur the cost of a full-time staff, and to draw upon the expertise of certified IT audit/security professionals who can be deployed rapidly. The other option is to co-source, which enables organization’s existing in-house IT audit/security staff to leverage the experience of working with outside professionals to build a more robust IT function, and to potentially assume complete control of the IT function.
