Why is it important?
The success of modern organisations, in all markets and industries, is increasingly dependent on information technology. But along with the benefits, there are threats and risks that can lead to significant financial and reputational losses. An IT audit is one of the tools that can help organisations to manage those threats and risks and ensure efficient use of their resources. An IT audit provides an objective assessment of an organisation’s IT environment and infrastructure, and its policies and procedures and their relevance to the organisation's goals and generally accepted practices and industry standards.
How we can help
KPMG has developed and applied its own approach to the execution of IT audit projects, which is specifically adjusted to the needs of each organisation, to industry standards and legal and regulatory requirements. Our methodology focuses on the analysis of existing risks to key processes, from a technological and business perspective, to deliver targeted, practical audit results. We compare existing practices and processes with generally accepted standards, to identify opportunities to increase process efficiency and reduce the risks associated with IT usage, and develop recommendations to address any shortcomings identified.
What we do
What you get
Our clients receive a report detailing any shortcomings identified, related risks and our recommendations. The report contains both a general description of the audit results for senior management and more detailed information for sector specialists. We also provide assistance to leadership teams to help them identify priority risk mitigation measures and outline the critical paths for their implementation.
