The acxell Approach

The objectives of the information technology audit are to evaluate the adequacy of internal controls, as applied to automated systems and the environment in which they function. This entails reviewing controls to ensure that only valid and authorized data is accepted and processed completely and accurately, and that the necessary information and records are provided on a continuing basis. acxell’s audit procedures focus on the total systems environment, with emphasis given, but not limited to:

  • Data security, access controls, retention and recovery
  • Input processing and output controls from authorization, and initiation of input to distribution of output
  • Controls over modifications to networks, operating systems and applications
  • Adherence to organizational, regulatory and legal policies and requirements
