- MANAGEMENT OF IT AND ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE: an audit to verify that IT management has developed an organizational structure and procedures to assure a controlled and efficient environment for processing of information.
- UNCERTAINLY AS TO THE TRUE COST OF IS before investments or modifications are made, an organization should know the current cost in IS. Without a comprehensive management overview, this can be difficult to ascertain.
- PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT SYSTEMS. Measuring and improving IS is a constant challenge. Performance must be measurable to determine that the investment in IT is properly managed, technology risks are appropriately controlled, and a baseline for improvement is established.
- REGULATION AND COMPLIANCE FRAMEWORKS. Compliance frameworks can be costly and complicated to implement. However, without them, organizations may increase their risk of fines and the risk of their IS assets being badly managed.
VALUE AND PERFORMANCE FROM IT :- What is the business value of IT to an organization? How is IT performing? These are the questions that many executives are asking about their investment in information technology. Often, what is missing is an effective dialog between the corporate level and the IT function. When this is supported by an investment appraisal and performance monitoring, the organization can have a clear understanding of the benefits IT brings to the business. In addition, business events such as transactions and restructuring will change the overall IT need. Clients then need to reappraise management and sourcing decisions.

TECHNOLOGY RISK: - Technology Risk concerns that organizations may have such as:
SECURITY, PRIVACY AND CONTINUITY: In today's business environment, the reputation of a business, indeed its existence, can be effected to the great extent by the strength of the security, privacy and business continuity mechanisms it has in place.
Fundamental controls, such as the segregation of duties, are often completely reliant on the strength of technology based access controls. In a world of global communications networks, security vulnerabilities can be quickly exploited. Well-publicized frauds and scams erode public confidence.
IT INTERNAL AUDIT SERVICES: For some time, risk management through internal audit has been considered a contributing factor to an effective corporate governance framework. With developments, this perception is further reinforced.
The quality and effectiveness of Internal Audit functions are diverse, as are their mandate. To achieve effective Internal Audit coverage, specialist skills will often be needed in order to assess the business' specific risks. Where IT is concerned, technical subject matter specialists are often required.
IT ATTESTATION SERVICES: In an environment where customers and clients are increasingly affected by a business' IT systems, extra assurance is often required to satisfy stakeholder expectations.
SAS 70 and similar standards examinations demonstrate that clients have undergone a comprehensive review of control activities. This involves controls over transaction processing as well as IT and related processes. Reviews offer clients with a third party attestation against the organization's internal control objectives. A formal report including the auditor's opinion is issued to the client at the conclusion of the examination.
IRM IN THE EXTERNAL AUDIT: IRM is a vital part of the external audit and is used in evaluation of financial audit risk. This comprises of identifying financial and operational risks embedded in business systems and processes, and providing advisory on risk mitigation.
IRM professionals integrate technology issues into the framework of the audit, working as part of the audit team in order to assess the technology component of business issues, risks, and strategies.
