Cybersecurity. Privacy. Data management and governance. Building effective partnerships with the IT organization. Dealing with ongoing digital transformation and disruption. Addressing resource and talent challenges. In assessing findings from the 2019 Global IT Audit Benchmarking Study, conducted by ISACA and Protiviti, it is clear these are among the top issues IT audit leaders and professionals are addressing as they seek to understand, support and advance business growth and innovation in their organizations.

In this report, ISACA and Protiviti present the results of their global research and offer commentary on these and other notable industry trends. They also provide high-level recommendations for IT audit and senior business leaders, and as always, provide a detailed breakdown of the benchmarking data by organization size, region and more.

This information will be an asset to IT audit leaders and professionals as they assess their own functions in the organization, identify gaps in their capabilities, move to focus on areas beyond check-the-box compliance exercises, strengthen their partnerships with IT as well as executives and board members, and ensure they are delivering value for their organization.
