IT/ IS Internal Audit

Expand all

Overview

The ability to perform Information Technology (IT) control and Information Systems (IS) audits requires a combination of (a) deep understanding of various infrastructure and application components and (b) strong auditing credentials and methodologies. Whilst organizations are often able to acquire internally the necessary skills and knowledge for one of the two ingredients, their ability to have, maintain and retain both is usually restricted.

Odyssey’s IT/ IS Internal Audit services are based on leading edge methodologies which are recognized world-wide for their completeness and comprehensiveness, such as ISACA’s Control Objectives for Information Technology (CobiT) and the Information Security standard, ISO 27001.  They are designed to provide a cost effective and flexible solution to organizations which decide to outsource the execution of their annual IT/ IS audit program, while retaining the responsibility for the final delivery, management and reporting of the audit findings internally.
