Abstract

There is a growing phenomenon in the United States in the IT audit profession to hire MIS majors, even those who have little or no formal education in auditing. Moreover, the demand for entry-level IT auditors is rising, mostly due to dramatic changes in laws and regulations. Regardless of whether an MIS student is currently interested in this career, all MIS students (and educators) need an awareness of the impact that these new laws and regulations are having on IT operations. For students interested in IT audit careers, we describe IT auditing and discuss skills necessary for success in this profession.
