IT audits examine and evaluate an organization's information technology infrastructure, policies and operations. The primary objectives of an IT audit include:
- Determine risks to a company's information assets, and help identify methods to minimize those risks.
- Evaluate the systems and processes in place that secure company data, maintain data integrity and availability and produce reliable and accurate information.
- Ensure information management processes are in compliance with IT-specific laws, policies and standards.
- Determine inefficiencies in IT systems and associated management
Internal Audit works closely with the ITS Department and are members of the Data Security Committee to provide educational guidance and promote security awareness to the University community.
We have a Data Security Survey available in order to aid departments in evaluating their own data security practices to identify potential areas of risk and opportunities for improvement.
