Coming Soon! The IIA's IT Audit Research Symposium Results

The IIA Research Foundation and The IIA's Advanced Technology Committee hosted the second IT Audit Research Symposium on July 8 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in conjunction with The IIA's International conference. The purpose of the symposium is to discuss potential solutions for significant IT audit issues, which will help The IIA promote emerging IT audit research projects. The symposium served as a springboard for future IIA technology initiatives. Subject discussed included:

  • Why do IT projects fail? What controls and related metrics should be in place to monitor each of the failure reasons?
  • Why is IT so expensive?
  • IT security — ensuring computer security by examining how IT users can best be involved in and encouraged to follow good IT security procedures.
  • Continuous auditing.
  • Continuous privacy monitoring.
  • Using IT maturity concept for evaluating internal control effectiveness of outsourcing and co-sourcing business processes.

Check back soon to The IIA Web site for the results.
