Depending on the ambit and terms of the engagement, external IT auditors may rely on an entity’s internal IT audit function to follow-up on their agreed-upon recommendations. Hence, a follow-up process should be established by the entity’s internal IT audit function to monitor, and ensure, managerial actions have been effectively implemented or senior management has accepted the risk of not taking action. Responsibility for these follow-up activities should be defined in the audit charter and/or engagement letter to enable proper consideration by clients.
