IT Audit Services

Our IT audit professionals are Certified Information Systems Auditors (CISAs) and have experience working as "Big Four" IT auditors, IT management and internal IT auditors for some of the nation's largest corporations.  We are experienced in providing various IT-related services, such as:

 

IT Audit Staff Augmentation 

We can provide IT audit resources to supplement your existing Internal Audit staff.  Internally staffing the IT audit function is difficult for companies due to the complexity of most IT environments and requires various technical skill-sets.  Our team of CISAs provide an affordable alternative to staffing these resources internally. 


IT Risk Assessments

Our IT risk assessments are based on Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT) issued by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA).  COBIT provides leading practices for the management of IT processes in a manageable and logical structure by bridging the gaps between business risks, technical issues, and internal control needs.  We will assist you in identifying the high-risk areas within your IT universe and creating a risk-based Audit Plan based on this risk assessment.

 

IT Policy and Procedures

Our team can assist you with development of brand new IT Polices and Procedures from scratch, tailore to the specific needs of your company, or we can review your existing Polices and Procedures and provide feedback to strenghten them.

    • Sarbanes-Oxley
    • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
