Audit IT System
What is IT Audit?
Audit IT or information technology audit is a system based on information technology with the aim of helping auditors in the process of planning, executing, controlling, completing and directing audit operations. Auditors in Iran have been examining owners’ document with their traditional method for years. These days, auditors use computer-based tools and techniques to audit companies and industries. It seems that the existence of an intelligent computer system for every knowledge-oriented firm is not a choice but a management requirement and necessity. With the development of companies and the ever-increasing volume of their operations, the audit risk has increased and it has become difficult to conduct extensive content tests. In fact, with the increase in the volume of documents produced and the continuous change of financial and administrative laws and regulations the risk of error detection has increased by controlling samples of documents. Whereas computer-based auditing methods enable audit firms to analyze a large amount of data in a short period of time, and errors and frauds are discovered more easily.
