Read the Gail Industries Case Study. You will use details from it throughout all 6 weeks of this course.
Imagine you are the IT manager for Gail Industries and you are meeting with a new business analyst team at the Smallville customer site. The project sponsor has asked you to spend time with the business analyst team to gather details to meet IT audit requirements to determine whether IT services meet the organization’s objectives.
Prepare a 12- to 16-slide media-rich presentation with speaker notes for a business briefing for your Smallville client about IT audit objectives, risk assessment, and what help you may need from them to complete this task. In your presentation:
- Describe at least 2 reasons that it is important to conduct periodic reviews of information systems (IS) to determine whether they continue to meet the organization’s objectives.
- Discuss the importance of the organization’s policies and practices as they relate to IS and IT infrastructure.
- List at least 2 organization policies and associate them with an example of an IT or cybersecurity operation or procedure.
- Identify strategic and operational objectives audit planning.
Ensure you are preparing for a systems audit, not a financial audit. Frame your analysis around the systems, not the accounting or finance aspects directly.
