Assuring an enterprise's governance, including risk management and control processes, requires auditors to understand the role of IT within their organizations and to develop adequate knowledge and skills to audit IT systems as the line separating "IT" and "non-IT" audits are beginning to disappear, except in the very technical IT domains.
