Regarding laws and regulations, when professional standards are applied to compliance engagements, an IT auditor has the right to believe that management has established appropriate controls to prevent, deter and detect illegal acts, unless tests and evaluations carried on by an IT auditor prove otherwise. Furthermore, IT auditors should forego utilizing unlicensed tools and software when conducting IAP audit assignments.
