Global consulting firm Protiviti and global business technology professional association ISACA have released their annual report, A Global Look at IT Audit Best Practices.

Key findings from the survey of more than 1,300 IT audit and internal audit leaders and professionals include:

  • Privacy/cybersecurity was cited as the top concern for the second year in a row
  • 37% percent of businesses did not address cybersecurity within their audit plans, citing lack of resources as the primary reason
  • Half of all organizations polled have a dedicated IT audit director (or equivalent position), representing a significant increase from five years ago where only 35 percent of organizations had such a role
  • 59 percent of North American IT audit teams are significantly or moderately involved in technology projects
  • For the first time, data management and governance was named a top 10 risk, underscoring the increased awareness and risk around the growing supply of organizational data as digital transformation efforts gain momentum
