ITAF: A Professional Practices Framework for IT Assurance

IT Governance Institute

The Information Technology Assurance Framework (ITAFTM) is a comprehensive and good-practice-setting model that: Provides guidance on the design, conduct and reporting of IT audit and assurance assignments; Defines terms and concepts specific to IT assurance; Establishes standards that address IT audit and assurance professional roles and responsibilities, knowledge and skills, and diligence, conduct and reporting requirements. ITAF is focused on ISACA material as well as content and guidance developed by the IT Governance Institute (ITGI TM) and other organisations, and, as such, provides a single source through which IT audit and assurance professionals can seek guidance, research policies and procedures, obtain audit and assurance programmes, and develop effective reports. While ITAF incorporates existing ISACA Standards and guidance, it has been designed to be a living document. As new guidance is developed and issued, it will be indexed within the framework and made available to ISACA members. To date, current ISACA guidance has been mapped to the framework.
