Audit and Assurance Programs For Risk Managers

ISACA : 03 February, 2012  (New Product)
ISACA has developed a range of services covering auditing and assurance to provide assistance to IT assurance professionals
Audit and Assurance Programs For Risk Managers
Integrating IT risk and enterprise risk management is essential to the overall health of an enterprise’s infrastructure. To provide audit and assurance professionals with the most up-to-date guidance on IT auditing, risk management and strategic alignment, ISACA, a nonprofit association serving 95,000 IT professionals in 160 countries, has developed new audit/assurance programs:

* IT Risk Management Audit/Assurance Program, which helps auditors provide senior management with an understanding of the effectiveness of the IT risk management process, supporting framework and policies, and assurance that IT risk management is aligned with the enterprise risk management process
* IT Strategic Management Audit/Assurance Program, which provides a general IT controls review and an audit of the IT function from a strategic approach
* IT Tactical Management Audit/Assurance Program, which provides a tactical approach to an IT general controls review and an operational audit of the IT function to improve the implementation of governance, policies, procedures and enterprise standards
* Lotus Domino Server Audit/Assurance Program, which focuses on the Domino server—specifically, the e-mail function and applications

Forthcoming audit/assurance programs that will be available soon from ISACA are:

* IPv6 Security Audit/Assurance Program
* Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Audit/Assurance Program

ISACA also will release a new publication this month:  Security, Audit and Control Features Oracle® PeopleSoft®, 3rd Edition, which will include customizable audit programs.

“Formal audits of IT controls provide transparency that can build the level of trust enterprises have in IT,” said Ken Vander Wal, CISA, CPA, international president of ISACA. “ISACA provides these audit programs to help auditors worldwide design and execute effective reviews that result in improved assurance processes and contribute to the enterprise’s overall goals and objectives.”

The audit/assurance programs are based on the standards and guidance in ISACA’s IT Assurance Framework (ITAF) and align with the globally recognized COBIT framework for governance and management of IT. They have been developed by a team of experienced assurance professionals from around the world and are peer reviewed. The programs are downloadable in a Word document and can be easily customized to fit a specific operating environment.

They can also be used by security and business professionals, who will benefit from applying the control objectives and audit steps to make the respective scope areas more robust.
