IT Audit Management

Empowering IT auditors.

Empower your audit department with the tools they need to systematically evaluate the effectiveness of controls designed to keep your IT infrastructure and systems secure. Implement a robust IT Audit Management on Connected Risk™ software solution to streamline the IT audit process, enabling organizations to proactively identify security risks and threats, detect gaps in processes and procedures, and take steps to prevent cyber-attacks, data breaches, and system failures.

Due to the rising prevalence of corporate cyber-attacks, an increasing number of organizations are prioritizing the execution of regular IT audits. The advantages of doing so are manifold. IT audits assist organizations in identifying risks and threats to their IT security, detecting system vulnerabilities, and ensuring compliance with IT security standards. However, without the appropriate tools, IT auditing can evolve into a daunting and time-consuming endeavor.

Connected Risk®’s IT Audit Management is a digital tool that organizations deploy to manage IT audit activities centrally, alleviate risks and threats, validate the effectiveness of IT controls, and ascertain regulatory and organizational compliance. It facilitates organizations in assessing their IT infrastructure, systems, applications, data management, policies, procedures, and operational processes against internal policies and/or regulatory standards, enabling them to implement corrective measures.

With Audit Management, you can effortlessly add a work schedule as needed, providing your audit teams with the flexibility to swiftly adapt to business demands for expert independent reviews.

For instance, when examining a new business acquisition or joint venture, assessing the consequences of an emerging risk not yet recorded in the corporate register, or evaluating the impact of market disruptions on vulnerable areas of the business.

All of these processes are efficiently managed through robust version control, ensuring a comprehensive audit trail of plan modifications made throughout the year. This documentation can be readily presented to stakeholders and regulators, offering clear evidence of the audit process.

Audit Management streamlines your audit teams' fieldwork by linking electronic workpapers to multiple audit file elements, eliminating unnecessary duplication. This feature enables the creation of composite workpapers that encompass test plans covering various controls, risks, and processes. These workpapers are seamlessly linked to audit findings, ensuring a strong and easily navigable audit trail.

Additionally, your teams receive checklists to record test approaches and results, eliminating the need for duplicate or intermediary workpapers. This empowers a more efficient and focused audit execution.

Connected Risk® offers sophisticated integrated reporting that can be utilized across all solutions on the Connected Risk® platform.
