IT Auditing: New Systems Audit Program

The audit program can be used to help develop an integrated approach to performing IT audits of New Systems or to modify your current approach. Using this approach permits an efficient use of internal audit resources in the auditing of new automated systems and major changes to existing systems by ensuring that a risk assessment is made prior to committing audit resources.

Using this approach ensures the audit objectives of the reviews selected because of high risk-ranking are met by determining if automated controls are being incorporated into the system, if new systems are being developed and implemented according to a formal methodology, and if new systems comply with that methodology.
