What is an IT Audit?
An IT audit is an audit on anything that pertains to your organization’s information technology (IT) department. You can be audited on a number of factors, including how strong your employee passwords are, encryption protocols or user access levels. You may also be audited against a specific compliance framework, such as SOC 2, ISO 27001, NIST CSF or PCI DSS.
Having a comprehensive IT Audit program often involves creating a Plan of Action and Milestones (POAM), which helps you define the scope of your audits ahead of time. This ensures that ultimately, all IT-related audits are running smoothly and you’re prepared for them on time. It also helps you identify potential issues early on so you can resolve them and keep your organization protected from IT threats.
IT Audit Risks
Whether or not you fail an audit, wasting time completing manual work to prepare for an audit costs money. Failing to outline the scope of an audit ultimately leads to wasting money, and it’s a slippery slope; you’ll inevitably miss key information and need to dedicate more time and resources to triaging issues rather than preventing them in the first place through a risk-based approach.
