Project monitoring and audit
Information systems monitoring and revision (Information System Audit) is a process of IS performance crosscheck due to business requirements, process of analysis and verification of their accuracy, as well as, of their effectiveness, efficiency, availability and reliability. System monitoring and auditing is a set of complex management, audit and technology activities which are used to review (check) effects, but also the risks of using information systems, which is later processed like a business factor. In order to cover all elements of the project implementation, operation or maintenance, surveillance is carried out from the technical, business and financial aspects.
Using standard project methodologies such as Rational Unified Process, ITIL or PMBOK , et cetera, we’re ensuring project quality management , and thus the system implementation. Project monitoring methodologies and standards are adaptable to methodologies which are already applied to the project in order to reduce additional supervision costs, first of all, in documentation segment.
During supervision, apart from project methodology, different norms and standards are used:
IS development management (CMMI, TickIT, …)
IT service management (ITIL)
IT investment management (Val IT)
Risk Management (Risk IT, MEHARI, PCI DSS, Basel II, ISO 27005)
Security management IS (ISO 27000, NIST, SANS, iS3)
Project Management (Prince 2, PMBOK)
Business Continuity Management (BS 25999)
