Is it Time For a Tech Audit?


How reliable is the technology that your organization or business relies on every day? If you’re not sure then it’s the time to conduct a technology audit. A tech audit can help ensure that your systems are running in the way they should and that the information you store is protected from cyber-attacks that could expose sensitive information.

A tech audit is an in-depth review of an organization’s IT infrastructure including its operations and policies. It is a way to identify potential security risks, as and also identify ways to improve internal controls. It’s an integral part of any company’s cybersecurity plan and can be used to satisfy regulatory or certification requirements.

To conduct a technology audit, a group of professionals with the required qualifications must first develop a plan that outlines the scope, timeframe, and other details. The plan should also describe how the findings from the tech audit will be utilized, and how any improvement can be incorporated into everyday routine business operations.

It is vital that the final report after the audit is complete, is concise and clear. The report should be read by non-technical stakeholders and provide an overview of the findings and a plan to address any issues that are identified. In addition to technical methods of auditing, it’s essential to think about the ethical and moral implications of certain algorithms for technology.
