This phase facilitates the IT auditor in gaining an understanding of the agency, its organisational structure and operations. The IT auditor obtains an understanding of the entity’s computer related operations and controls and related risks in view of inherent IT risks. From this understanding the auditor evaluates the overall IT control environment and makes a preliminary risk assessment. The results of the assessment will guide the extent of procedures to be employed in subsequent phases of the audit.
During this phase of auditing, IT auditors obtain detailed information on control policies, procedures and objectives and perform tests of control activities. The objectives of these tests are to determine if controls are operating effectively. General controls as well as application controls must be effective to help ensure the confidentiality, integrity, availability and reliability of critical computer processed data.
During the reporting phase, the IT auditor draws conclusions and develops a report in order to communicate the objectives of the audit, the audit scope, the methodology adopted and the findings, conclusions and recommendations.
Creation of audit file, keeping all information regarding the projects from engagement letter, system description, working papers up to final report.
