Are the computer systems and software exposed to embezzlement and fraud?

To what extent can a manager or internal auditor / CPA trust the information he receives from the business’s computer software?

Can the information stored in the computer systems leak out to foreign parties?

These are some of the questions that an information systems audit is supposed to answer.

The backbone of most businesses and organizations operating today is computing and information systems.

Our company’s cyber experts have many years of experience in providing services to large business entities with practical and in-depth experience in complex technological systems, a deep understanding of the cyber space, the groups operating in it, the threats, risks and challenges facing organizations in these aspects.
