Information Systems Audit

An IS audit is an evaluation of the controls within an organization’s information technology (IT) infrastructure to assess the adequacy and effectiveness of those controls in ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the organization’s IT systems and data. The results of the audit identify weaknesses or deficiencies and provide recommendations for improvement. IS audits are typically conducted on a regular basis to ensure the ongoing security and effectiveness of the organization’s IT systems.
