The IIA is producing a series of publications with guidance on information technology. Written primarily for the chief internal audit executive (CAE) and audit supervisors, the guide will address concerns of the board of directors and chief-level executives. Each Global Technology Audit Guide (GTAG)?will be written in straightforward business language to address timely issues related to information technology management, control, or security. GTAG will be a ready resource series for chief audit executives to use in the education of members of the board and audit committee, management, process owners, and others regarding technology-associated risks and recommended practices.
The global perspective of the guides will reflect The IIA's global membership. The IIA will involve audit and security experts, board members, chief executives, financial executives, technology providers, and information technology and security executives in writing the guide. Specialized views such as legal, insurance, regulatory, and standards will be included as appropriate.
