I have been trying for a while now to convince senior management that an IT security Audit would be a good thing.  No we have never had one. I did get them to endorse an option that would let me explore the possibility. So my question is roughly how much would an IT security Audit cost?

    maybe you would like to get in some vendors to give you a rough price as the bigger the scope the bigger the price too.

    Too many unknown variables to give a dollar figure. As mentioned above, check with some vendors. Depending on your equipment, network and user base it can vary significantly. If your company is small it may not be too bad or time consuming.

    Scope matters, of course, but it's usually not as bad as you think it might be...it's certainly a lot better than the costs associated with a breach. The important thing is to make sure you understand what it is that you need which involves asking the right questions and getting feedback from prospective vendors.
