Information Systems & Technology processes Internal Audit



Outsourcing and Co-sourcing your IT audit

Internal Information Technology (IT)  & Information System Audit (IS) is the review and evaluation of an organisation’s technological processes and controls to identify any deficiencies with respect to efficiency, risk management and compliance.

Internal Audit departments look to acquire these technical skills via outsourced or “co-sourced” services from third-party service providers in order to supplement their core skills as required.

Information Technology and Information Systems audit should be a top priority investment for management and not when a risk materialises.


How can we help?

By outsourcing or co-sourcing this service with PwC, Internal Audit departments supplement their core skills with technical skills and knowledge to deliver an IT/IS audit.

Our methodology, which is both Committee of Sponsoring Organisations (COSO) and Control Objectives for Information and Related Technologies (COBIT)-2019-based, facilitates an overall IT/IS internal audit management team (either PwC-led, client-led, or in combination) with the execution of individual projects by subject-matter experts in each IT/IS audit area.
