The latest business continuity news from around the world

Global IT association ISACA is helping auditors expand their expertise by introducing a new audit program to provide guidance on assessing IT business continuity and disaster recovery capabilities.

The ‘IT Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Audit Program’ helps auditors assess an enterprise’s disaster preparedness and ability to continue with critical priority operations during a disruption and get back to business as usual afterward. It also addresses emergency readiness assurance, including communications and evacuation.

“IT audit professionals have long been committed to keeping pace with the changing landscape of technology and other evolving areas that impact their enterprises, bringing value in the process. This has been especially true during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has illustrated how essential IT business continuity and disaster recovery continue to be,” says Robin Lyons, ISACA IT audit professional practices lead. “ISACA is committed to providing the audit community with the resources and tools they need to stay highly valuable and effective in the midst of these changes.”

The IT Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Audit Program is complimentary to members and $49 for non-members.
