An IT audit is a thorough assessment of all information technology infrastructure used by the business. It involves:
- Checking whether the IT infrastructure meets the requirements of the business;
- Examining whether the existing configuration is efficient and cost-effective;
- Testing the information security policies and data protection safeguards;
- Checking for outdated or redundant components and for improvement possibilities.
Although IT audit and computer system health check is directly related to information technology and should be performed by qualified IT professionals, in essence it is an asset management operation. Indeed, all the IT equipment and software used by a business, taken in its entirety, is an asset that has initial and maintenance costs, advantages that bring or increase the company income, and the resulting value – all attributes of a business asset.
