The top technology challenge faced by IT audit executives and professionals worldwide is to keep pace with emerging technology and infrastructure changes, including transformation, innovation and disruption, according to a new joint survey from global consulting firm Protiviti and ISACA, a global association for IT assurance, governance and cybersecurity professionals. In today’s dynamic and ever-changing business and technology environments, companies are challenged to manage an escalating volume of IT risks at the same rapidity with which they are presented—a task that must be mastered in order to ensure the well-being of a business.
