    Mustafa,

    I agree with you and liked you mentioned that Data analysis in internal audit process has moved from a desired activity to a required one.

    Internal audit departments are increasingly relying on data analytics technology and hiring more people who have sophisticated data analysis skills, according to a new survey.

    Said,

    Interesting post, As you mentioned having a strong data collection setup and access to detailed reports in services like Google Analytics, Facebook or any popular social media, and others will provide E-commerce company with the information needed to make critical business decisions.

  • I found this information interesting:

    The presumed answer is yes! In the US alone, the Department of Justice calls hacking back “likely illegal”; the Federal Bureau of Investigation “cautions” victims against […]

    • I worry about getting into a cyber-war, but now I think that it may be a good idea to attempt to take out the hacking capabilities of known hacking groups. Obviously, there would need to be some guidelines, but It may be better to get them before they get you.

    • I can’t help to think of the old saying “two wrongs don’t make a ‘right’!” A very good point was made about retaliating against the wrong person/entity. I can see where a retaliating victim could quickly become the criminal if an unsuspecting person becomes the ‘new victim’. The home intrusion analogy was very effective in illustrating the various outcomes that could occur. Although it makes logical sense to notify the authorities when you are a victim of a crime; it was stated earlier this semester that it is fairly likely that the authorities will most likely not follow up individual claims of cyber-fraud. So, I can definitely understand why there may be some ‘technology-savvy’ victims who may want to take matters into their own hands.

    • James,

      The comment you made about nothing being done was something that came to mind when originally answering this question. Ed talked about the young guy in Atlanta that was attempting to hack his company. They decided not to do anything legally, but what would they have gotten if they did? Mike Green talked about the guy in Albania, where nothing was done. If the authorities continue to do nothing, then companies will eventually take matters into their own hands.

    • Great post. I believe data analytics can be an incredibly powerful tool for auditors. Advances in data science can be applied to perform more effective audits. Audit data analytics methods can be used in audit planning and in procedures to identify and assess risk by analyzing data to identify patterns, correlations, and fluctuations from models. These methods can give auditors new insights about the entity and its risk environment and improve the quality of analytical procedures of the audit. This can greatly help auditors obtain better evidence for their audit opinions.
