Deloitte IT Assurance

Even though IT environments are becoming more and more complex and critical for day-to-day business operations, an organisation’s management may still not be aware of the exact risks faced by its IT environments. The following are some examples of particular IT risks that might be overlooked during daily routines or due to a lack of an adequate independent assessment:

• Operational limitations due to IT system unavailability

• System vulnerability as a consequence of an inadequate level of information security

• Reputational risk due to data leakage or loss

• Full dependence or reliance on services provided by application system vendors

Comprehensive IT audits of your IT environment, independently or in cooperation with your internal audit function will provide a description of the IT environment, evaluation of the internal processes, assessment of the internal controls design, conclusion on the controls testing and recommendations for addressing any risks that are not being managed well.

IT audit professionals through an IT Assurance approach that is backed by strong data analytics and CAATS insights and skills, will provide your organisation with external assessment services that are tailored to your specific needs and that reflect industry standards.
