An IT audit or system audit focuses on an organization's information systems, operations and practices in order to determine whether the IT system is maintaining data integrity and operating efficiently in order to meet the organization's goals.
Like an IT audit, a quality management audit is concerned with protecting assets and maintaining data integrity and operating efficiency. Additionally, a quality audit helps ensure compliance with regulatory and ISO requirements or standards. Using an IT audit management software system is a more efficient way of conducting these audits.
