This week`s resource selections focus on IT audit guidance that covers the evaluation of a variety of critical IT activities.

 

One of the key benefits of these guides is the self assessment by IT and other managers that can be facilitated, in advance of a formal internal audit.

 

Finally, I’d very much welcome your feedback on the IT audit guidance.

 

Have another great week.
