What is an IT audit?
An Information Technology audit assesses a company’s information technology infrastructure, systems, and processes.
Usually, they are conducted by an external organisation or third party, ensuring the company is adhering to best practices in IT. They can also help identify areas for improvement. Internal audits can be completed if you have adequate resources available like an internal auditor.
An IT audit review is essential for businesses to assess and improve their IT infrastructure.
- It can help identify:
- Risks (such as cyber security)
- Identify improvements (such as business processes)
- Provide insights that can help improve decisions at all levels of the organisation

Providing insights into a company’s IT infrastructure and processes. This helps improve decision-making at all levels of the organisation.
What’s involved in the process?
The typical audit process includes the following steps:
Planning and scoping
The first step in the audit process is to plan and scope the engagement. We recommend reviewing a company’s network architecture, data security, disaster recovery plan, and other aspects of its IT infrastructure.
Once the objectives and scope of the audit have been set, the next step is to gather information. You can complete this through interviews with key personnel, document review, and observation.
Once the information has been collected, you will need to evaluate against the objectives and scope of the audit. Here you can identify any risks or vulnerabilities and opportunities for improvement.
The final step in the process is to report the audit results. This report will generally include a summary of the findings and recommendations for improvement.
