Outsourcing and the Need for Supplier Audits
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: This presentation will discuss the reasons why companies use third party suppliers, either as in an outsourced arrangement or in a true vendor arrangement, the risks involved and what audit should be doing.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: More companies are trying to reduce their internal expenses for company owned devices by allowing employees to use their smart phone, iPads, etc. to access company data. This poses significant risks or data loss and security breaches. The auditor must be aware of this and be able to comment upon the strategy being proposed.
