Dear Friend > System Audit “Independent and objective appraisal process that assures information is being processed in a safe and sound manner; that operations are efficient, effective, and adequate; and, information assets are safeguarded” System audit refers to audit of systems (especially computer based) which provided information (like Accounts, Payroll, MIS etc.) to assure the management that the information generated from these system are reliable.

**SYSTEM AUDIT** 50 years ago most of our information & data processing needs were fulfilled manually; today computers are used extensively to process data and to provide decision-making. The information system does not necessarily mean the computer based information system. The Information Technology is a major component of Information System and in itself not a solution. Nowadays, with the widespread availability of powerful microcomputers and packaged software, the Information Technology is the backbone of information system. Because computers play a large part in assisting us to process data and to take decisions. It is important that their use be controlled. The uncontrolled use of computers can have a widespread impact on society. For example, inaccurate information causes misallocation of resources within the economy and fraud can be perpetrated because of inadequate system controls. Information systems audit has been focused on whether the systems safeguard the assets, maintain data integrity, and facilitate the achievement of objectives of the company. Thanks

An information systems audit performed by RMAS is a comprehensive examination of a given targeted system. The audit consists of an evaluation of the components which comprise that system, with examination and testing in the following areas: End user identity management (e.g. authentication mechanisms, password standards, roles limiting or granting systems functionality) Operating systems configurations (e.g. services hardening) Application security controls Database access controls (e.g. database configuration, account access to the database, roles defined in the database) Anti-virus/Anti-malware controls Network controls (e.g. running configurations on switches and routers, use of Access control lists, and firewall rules) Logging and auditing systems and processes IT privileged access control (e.g. System Administrator or root access) IT processes in support of the system (e.g. user account reviews, change management) Backup/Restore procedures
