    Alex, I’ve asked the same question. As mentioned above, the people who commit these breaches could have been so easily detected, due to little things being over looked (i.e.)
    not updating firewalls and lack of employee training /education in detecting threats etc. Although, hacking is evolving much more throughout the decades alongside…[Read more]

  • Said, I do get where you are coming from. My suggestion was more along the sides of collaboration and growth. I don’t really think its one-sided choice whatsoever. I personally just think that organizations must understand technology and the enterprise impacts/risk that it faces at that time by thinking more along the lines of the future.…[Read more]

  • I think the Audit and Assurance professions will benefit from the millennial generation. As being a millennial myself, we have grown up using computers, mobile technology, and smart devices our entire lives, and that continues to evolve alongside technology; therefore, millennials have a much more advanced baseline knowledge of digital information…[Read more]

    Sean, I get where you are coming from. I don’t think its a one sided thing and must be contingent on each other. Businesses are finally recognizing how to balance the ROI gains of using technology. For example, enterprise messaging services have already begun displacing the need for email communication within the enterprise, and this trend is only…[Read more]

    Which one of these do you consider the worst type from the standpoint of the auditee? Why? The auditee is the person or group responsible for the subject matter being audited.

    From my personal standpoint, I would choose “The Lazy” IS Auditor as the worst type. As being the auditee, I would want an IS Auditor to be the total opposite of Laz…[Read more]

    Yu Ming, I agree with your statement, “There is no conflict between depth of knowledge in technology, or its impact on the enterprise.” I believe they are both equally important and for that reason, they should be aligned. By embracing both the IT innovation with its affects on the enterprise, allow businesses the ability to transform along side…[Read more]

    Mustafa, I actually am not surprised by those statistics whatsoever and I agree with David’s comment. The idea of personal data being compromised has become a product of our society, pretty much a norm. I remember reading an article, last semester that stated that 82% of millennials know that public wifi access is not secure to connect to, but…[Read more]

    Thanks for the input Sean. I thought the article’s highlights of the recommendations were pretty interesting on the different ways to address/approach risk. Although, some of them are a little contradiciting of each other, I think they provide an accurate assessment on how to perceive risk in a different manner. Like you mentioned, risk are hard…[Read more]

    Hey David, I enjoyed your post and was not aware things like that even happened. I’m sure plenty of people fall victim to such a scam. Email has most definitely changed the game for scammers. Email has provided the convenience and anonymity, along with the capability for easily contacting thousands of people at once, which enables scammers to w…[Read more]

    Alex, I agree with your post. An auditor must possess a strong ethical foundation and avoid any temptation to let things pass. As auditors we must use our sound judgement, while doing an audit to get down to the root of the risk and vulnerabilities. Maintaining our credibility is essential as it speaks for our work. Communication skills are a…[Read more]

    Hey Sean,

    Yes, I think if ERP systems were able to cater in that aspect of real-time monitoring, would most definitely set them apart. As we know, technology is constantly evolving and by being able to offer that service ,would get gobbled up by businesses. Not only would they be able to run more efficient on all realms, such as making sure…[Read more]

    Sean, like you, I agree that regulatory compliance should be of the utmost importance to an organization. I think organizations have much more to lose then by simply skimping out on ensuring the adequacy of those controls. As you mentioned, they will face more damage as a result; not only, monetary loss but reputational loss as well.
