Security audit and compliance are integral activities for auditors as they define controls and identify risk level to depict exact security posture of an organization. The massive task of security auditing requires exceptional IT skills because now dayís organizations are extremely dependant on digital assets which require continuous auditing and control.

While conducting audit, one of the biggest issues encountered by auditors is to thoroughly check their network, systems and databases against international standards and compliance requirements. Unlike financial audit, IS audit cannot be conducted on sampling basis because intruders try to identify the most vulnerable machine and exploit its vulnerabilities to breach security. Various research studies have identified the great contrast between intruders and auditors approach. Intruders do not rely on sampling method and commonly initiate their search for exploitable vulnerabilities from backup or test servers and afterwards move on to production servers. On contrary auditors adopt absolutely opposite approach for general sampling preferences. This issue is becoming critical for auditor as privacy; security and data protection are among the most common issues addressed by International compliance standards like HIPPA, SOX, FISMA, GLBA, PCI data security standards.
