Auditing the CIO/CTO Function:
The Good & the Bad
“Checking the results of a decision against its expectations shows executives what their strengths are, where they need to improve, and where they lack knowledge or information.”
Who authorized 9,000 servers for the break room computer event?
I got approval from the CIO to purchase the Data Center building.
So tell me why everyone in the organization needs their own color laser printer?
The CIO/CTO is in a tough position; pulled between fixing technology problems, trying to determine the future of IT in the external environment to keep the business current, and aligning technology to meet the business needs to improve performance. Not an easy job but one that is vital.
Like all functions, the CIO/CTO position is part of the larger business organization and requires checks and balances. Between January 2004 and January 2006 US organizations suffered an estimated 5 percent loss of annual revenues to fraud (estimated at approximately US $652 billion) related to a person’s position in a business.
This workshop is focused on the different types of audits and their extent a CIO/CTO can experience just from being in the position. Auditors need to know the extent of the culture and business environment before engaging in any of the three distinct types that may occur in the public as well as the private sector.
