IT Audit

An IT audit, also known as an information technology audit or information systems audit, is a comprehensive examination of an organisation's IT infrastructure, policies, and operations. A deep dive into your digital world, checking everything from the health of your computers and networks to how your employees use technology and how you protect your data. Technology is useful, but it’s also vulnerable. That’s why organisations must do an IT audit to ensure their data and network are safe. An IT audit might be the only thing standing between success and failure.

An audit also includes an evaluation to suggest improvements. 

Why is it important to conduct an IT Audit?

An IT audit is crucial to guarantee that a company's IT operations, controls, infrastructure and processes are safe from threats and working as intended. The main objective of an IT audit is to find areas of improvement and vulnerabilities to reduce the chances of IT risks and remain compliant with IT security standards. In addition to this key objective, there are other benefits from conducting regular IT audits, such as:

  • Improving existing IT service management policies, guidelines and processes to better adjust to the business objectives of the organisation.

  • Finding new technologies such as software, hardware or networking that could help companies better store, manage and transfer their business data.

  • Obtaining certifications such as ISO 27001 to strengthen companies' security, competitiveness, and trust with stakeholders

  • Ensure employees across departments understand company’s IT best practices.

  • Avoid regulatory fines or potential business losses due to ineffective IT security practices.

Overall, an IT audit is a valuable tool for any organisation that wants to ensure its IT infrastructure's security, efficiency, and alignment with its business goals.
