A Computing Australia IT Audit is a totally independent voice. We have nothing invested and can give you a frank assessment of your IT system:
- security and resilience
- compliance to industry standards
- operational costs
- suitability to business needs
- staff usage
- recommended improvements
Just like any audit process, IT audits can be confronting for people but we make it a smooth, non-confrontational process.
Our consultants work hand in hand with your own internal IT department and / or your external IT providers.
The emphasis of our work is remediation. We provide your team an itemised list of recommendations that can help to improve your systems overall.
We also provide a safe second set of eyes to look over IT proposals from other companies to determine there suitability to your future business needs and establish the best value for your investment.
Anatomy of an audit
The Computing Australia consulting team make the audit process straightforward and easy.
The first meeting introduces your team to our consultants. We give you a rundown of our methods and a list of our requirements that may include:
- Admin passwords
- Key IT contacts
Depending on the type of audit you have requested (internal, external) the consultative process can take various forms. Usually there is a combination of remote work and onsite work. The process is non-disruptive and inclusive.
At the conclusion of the consult, we provide you a full report that outlines our findings and recommendations. Your consultant will also conduct a briefing session to explain the findings.
After you have received the auditor’s report, we make ourselves available to conduct a follow up audit to determine if the issues we identify have been resolved.
