Position Summary

New opportunity for individuals who are interested in pursuing a career in professional services, specifically in the field of Information Technology (IT) Audit and cybersecurity.  

 

Tasks

IT Audit staff will focus on developing skills, building their technical skill base, understanding and executing diligent client service, and becoming oriented to the Firm’s practices, policies, and culture.  Work is performed under close supervision.  Responsibilities increase with demonstrated skill. 

The Internal Audit Risk Consulting (IARC) major service offerings include IT Audit, SOC1, SOC2, PCI, HIPAA, and cybersecurity compliance initiatives.  In addition, IARC supports financial statement audit teams and internal audit teams with documenting and testing IT controls.

Skills

  • IT Audit engagements: Basic audit acumen is needed, including the ability to grasp concepts quickly and demonstrate knowledge of basic technical skills, as well as related knowledge of common systems and procedures
  • Communication skills:  IT auditors need strong technical and business communication skills. IT auditors need to speak the language of all stakeholders so they can translate complex technical problems into quantifiable business decisions.
  • Ability and willingness to train others in general IT audit skills: Because much of what IT auditors learn is through on the job training, IT auditors must be able to train coworkers and subordinates in the fast-paced environment of IT auditing.
  • The ability to understand new technologies in a short-time period: With the accelerated development of new technologies and increasing sophistication of hackers, IT auditors must be able to stay on top of the most current trends.
  • Decision making: IT auditors are expected to make well-thought-out decisions and consider all facts prior to making final conclusions.
  • Regulatory standards: IT auditors are expected to follow regulations and professional ethics standards bodies, such as the AICPA.
  • Time keeping: Consultants are expected to track time and maintain designated chargeable hours for the year.
  • Quality control: Consultants are expected to ensure quality control procedures are being executed under direction of engagement supervisor, and perform thorough self-review of all work prior to submission.
