Deloitte IT Assurance

Our service offering

We are able to provide a comprehensive IT audit of your environment, independently or in cooperation with your internal audit function. Our IT Assurance approach is backed by strong data analytics and CAATS insights and skills.

Even though IT environments are becoming more and more complex and critical for day-to-day business operations, an organisation’s management may still not be aware of the exact risks faced by its IT environments. The following are some examples of particular IT risks that might be overlooked during daily routines or due to a lack of an adequate independent assessment:

  • Operational limitations due to IT system unavailability
  • System vulnerability as a consequence of an inadequate level of information security
  • Reputational risk due to data leakage or loss
  • Full dependence or reliance on services provided by application system vendors

We are able to provide comprehensive IT audits of your IT environment, independently or in cooperation with your internal audit function. The outcome of our procedures may be management letter points (a gap list with relevant recommendations and associated risks) that include a description of the IT environment, evaluation of the internal processes, assessment of the internal controls design, conclusion on the controls testing and recommendations for addressing any risks that are not being managed well.

Our broad experience in the field of external audits enables our IT audit professionals to provide external assessment services that are tailored to your specific needs and that reflect industry standards. We can realise the audit procedures according to the internal Deloitte methodology or other frameworks/standards, such as COBIT, ISO/IEC 27000 or ISO/IEC 20000.
