Preparing for Effective IT Audit Management
The complexity of regulatory requirements has forced organisations to rely on automated software solutions to meet their business goals while also ensuring corporate-wide compliance. This proliferation of IT and the increasing capacity of our technologies, has since warranted regulatory scrutiny of its own. We are now seeing extensive IT audits accompanied by sophisticated IT audit management software and various IT audit tools. This means that the software solutions we employee not only have to meet our business needs, but they also must comply with legislative regulations.
IT audits are becoming more frequent in order to ensure information-related controls and processes are working properly. Internal expectations from management as well as external expectations from regulators now require IT departments and their compliance counterparts to regularly review their information technology protocols as well as employ software solutions that are audit-ready.
