IT Audit Verification Planning: Resolving Technique Selection – Part IV

Robert Davis Robert Davis Profile: Robert Davis

Auditing IT configurations involves performing compliance and substantive tests on a selected information asset as an integrated unit. Integration can refer to various activities including: combining the separate testing of programs and files into an overall evaluation; combining the testing of programs and files into a single test; utilizing a mixture of techniques to accomplish the compliance and substantive testing objectives and combining the results into an overall evaluation of the entire IT configuration or a specific configuration subset; and treating the IT configuration — with its programs and files — as a single unit that receives input, processes data, and produces output in a regulated environment.
