IT Auditing and its Standards

Dr D S Kushwaha, Ankur Singh

Abstract: Information Systems Audit is the process of collecting and evaluating evidence to determine whether a computer system has been designed to maintain data integrity, safeguard assets, allows organizational goals to be achieved effectively and uses the resources efficiently. The IT Auditor should see that not only adequate internal controls exist in the system but they also wok effectively to ensure results and achieve objectives. Internal controls should be commensurate with the risk assessed so as to reduce the impact of identified risks to acceptable levels. IT Auditors need to evaluate the adequacy of internal controls in computer systems to mitigate the risk of loss due to errors, fraud and other acts and disasters or incidents that cause the system to be unavailable
