Information Systems Audit - WHAT is it?
An information technology audit, or information systems (IS) audit, is an examination of the management controls for IT infrastructure and a complete review of the security of computer systems.
It determines whether information systems are safeguarding assets, maintaining data integrity and operating effectively to achieve an organization’s goals.
WHEN do I need it?
The frequency of an IS audit will sometimes be mandated by a regulator, but for any organization managing or processing personal or financial information – whatever its sector or size – annual audits are the absolute minimum.
Regular audits are essential to keep pace with changes to IT infrastructure and systems – and with changes in the risk landscape.
