What is an ITGC Assessment?

An ITGC assessment is a systematic evaluation of your organization’s IT controls to ensure they align with best practices and industry standards. It focuses on the design, implementation, and operating effectiveness of your ITGCs.

  • Access Controls: Reviewing access management practices to ensure only authorized users have access to IT systems and data based on the principle of least privilege.
  • Data Security: Evaluating data security measures in place to protect data confidentiality, integrity, and availability. This includes encryption, access restrictions, backup and recovery procedures, and data classification practices.
  • Change Management: Assessing the effectiveness of your change management process for managing changes to IT systems, applications, and infrastructure to minimize disruptions and maintain stability.
  • Incident Management: Evaluating your incident response plan and procedures to ensure you can effectively identify, report, and resolve security incidents.
  • System Monitoring: Assessing your IT system monitoring practices to identify suspicious activity, security threats, and performance issues.
