ISACA IT Assurance Framework and Standards

  • 1.  ISACA IT Assurance Framework and Standards

    Hello everyone,

    ISACA work program 'IT continuity plan' references ITAF sections relevant to IT continuity planning such as :

    • 3630.2 Information Resource Planning
    • 3630.3 IT Service Delivery
    • 3630.4 Information Systems Operations
    • 3630.5 Outsourced and Third-party IT Activities
    • 3630.6 Systems Development Life Cycle
    • 3630.7 Business Continuity Plan and Disaster Recovery Plan
    I have searched the ITAF 3rd edition standards and frameworks found on the ISACA website but couldn't find these sections. Does anyone know where I can find these sections in ITAF? Thanks.

    Hi Bader,

    The audit program you are mentioning is from 2011 and is therefore based on the early version of ITAF (2008) and on COBIT 4.1. The program is still a valid and very usefull tool, as is COBIT 4.1 to my knowledge still the most popular framework for IT auditors, you only have to update the references to newer ISACA documents.

    To be able to compare and to give you perhaps some more ideas, find enclosed the 1st version of ITAF.

    A nice Sunday,

    Cobit5 has all the functions you are looking for, you can even try to align and compare it with ITIL updates
