IT Auditing in Public Institutions & Organisations

lang_en 18. June 2012 - 19. June 2012, NH Berlin Friedrichstraße

Information Technology and IT Auditing Incorporate their Own Risks and Challenges
Information Technology (IT) has become an integral component within public administration. Due to its importance in many administrative procedures nowadays, IT infrastructure and its application have to become part of audits as well. Audit activities must assess whether an organisation’s governance of Information Technology supports its strategies and objectives. Therefore, it is essential that auditors have specific knowledge about key information technology risks and controls as well as available IT audit techniques to perform their assigned work.

IT topics need to be integrated in the regular audit process or combined audits have to be conducted. However, as information technology auditing is not their primary responsibility, most auditors lack thorough expertise in this field. Many non-IT auditors are not aware of the risks related to information technology and ignore IT elements in their audits. However, as a professional auditor, you need to acquire knowledge about IT risks to be able to integrate IT topics into your audit strategy.
