Information Technology Audit

With highly publicized incidences of data loss and increasing security risks, many organizations struggle to develop and maintain a strong information technology (IT) control environment to mitigate IT risks. Employing qualified IT professionals has also become more difficult due to the high cost of training, limited availability of qualified resources and escalating compensation requirements. The role of IT audit has never been more important. In order to effectively manage the IT risk universe, your IT audit function needs to be skilled, trained and up-to-date with the ever evolving IT field.
