Global Technology Audit Guides The IIA Jan 15, 2013


GTAG 4: Management of IT Auditing, 2nd edition, helps chief audit executives (CAEs) keep pace with the ever-evolving landscape of information technology (IT) as it relates to IT auditing. The guide is written in straightforward business language that frames technology concepts in a context easy to understand for the business professional.

Published in 2013, the second edition of GTAG 4 takes into account the latest developments in the IT landscape and empowers CAEs to more efficiently and effectively manage their IT audit work by focusing on three core areas:

  • Determining where IT audit resources are needed
  • Accurately evaluating IT-related risks
  • Effectively executing IT audit work

In addition to providing practical advice for these three areas, the guide offers CAEs insight into the skill sets IT audit resources should possess in order to be effective in their roles and discusses general criteria for assessing the maturity of IT audit work.

Prepared by The IIA, each Global Technology Audit Guide (GTAG) addresses timely issues related to IT management, risk, control, and security. The GTAG series serves as a resource for CAEs on different technology-associated risks and recommended practices.
