Abstract
Whether an IT auditor is engaged in internal or external IT audit reporting, after formal audit results communication, IT audit follow-up is an engagement requirement. The IT auditor assigned responsibility for tracking and assessing audit area responses must have skills to confirm appropriate corrective actions deployment. The IT audit reporting process prepares an IT auditor for providing appropriate follow-up concerning resolved and unresolved audit issues. If the deployment of a corrective action does not occur, the assigned IT auditor should seek support from higher levels of audit area management for achieving recommendation implementation within a reasonable timeframe. Chapter 9 presents management's proposed actions, IT audit follow-up materiality, and IT audit follow-up criticality. Chapter 9 also addresses the management response assessment of corrective actions.
