Infographic 3rd Annual IT Audit Benchmarking Survey - 2014

  1. 1. From Cybersecurity to IT Governance— Thinking Through Your 2014 Audit Plan Assessing the Results of Protiviti’s Third Annual IT Audit Benchmarking Survey IT challenges—from controls and infrastructure to cybersecurity—are top-of-mind for organizations today. It’s critical to have a strong IT security framework in place, and by extension, a strong IT audit function. Yet the results of Protiviti's latest IT audit benchmarking study show that organizations have significant room for improvement in their IT audit practices to ensure an available, secure and efficient IT environment. Organizations are not gaining the audit coverage they need There is greater scrutiny today on cybersecurity and threats from more sources than ever previously known. Organizations should expand their IT audits to help identify IT security issues, risks and gaps identified in their IT audit risk assessments and testing. They don’t have adequate IT audit resources, and these resources are not a formal part of the audit group. Limited IT audit resources are a significant problem when considering that nearly every function in organizations today is technology-enabled.

BIG CONTROLS There remain major shortcomings in IT audit risk assessments Too many companies fail to perform IT audit risk assessments on a regular basis, or don’t update these assessments as frequently as they should. This is a positive development. The new COSO Internal Control Framework emphasizes the importance of strong IT governance and controls, underscoring the dynamic nature of technology in business today.
