IT Audit Overview

IT auditing is a key area on audits of financial institutions. We will perform specific procedures on IT general controls and application controls. The work will be conducted by our in-house IT specialists.

IT General controls

Fuad, our IT Audit Manager has significant experience working within the financial services sector. He will discuss the operation of the IT control environment and the operation of IT controls and will consider the following areas among others:

  • User Access Management
  • Application Acquisition and Implementation
  • Changes to existing Applications
  • Data Centre
  • Data Backup and Restorations / Disaster Recovery

MHA will consider a homogenous approach to IT testing as this will allow us to build efficiencies into our testing plan.

Application controls

Application Controls will be determined through walkthroughs of key business processes. These will be performed by the Finance and IT audit teams. The IT Audit team will perform testing to determine if identified key application controls are operating effectively.

MHA will discuss the results of our work in these areas with your management to confirm our correct understanding of issues identified and correct identification of mitigating controls. We will also report back to those charged with governance summarising the results of our work.
