A Framework for Auditing the Evaluation of Uncertainty for Compliance in Information Systems

Usha Bala Varanasi and B. D. C. N. Prasad
Abstract—Compliance monitoring in an organization is done by an auditor to ensure that the procedures or mechanisms adhere to the regulatory requirements as intended. An information technology audit assesses an organization’s information system and detects potential breakdowns, which are termed as uncertainty. This uncertainty is a quantitative indication of the quality of the result which is expressed in terms of coverage factor. It can moderate the efficiency of an organization. Uncertainty might lead to risk which weakens the business continuity process. In this paper, we propose a framework for evaluating, reducing the uncertainty and associated risks thereby improving the organization’s performance and producing realistic and accurate results. This framework provides a base for the empirical evidence stating that ‘compliance is affected by uncertainty’. A proper evaluation of uncertainty for compliance is a good professional practice of auditing which provides valuable information about the quality and reliability of the result.

Index Terms—Auditing, compliance, evaluating uncertainty, compliance management, IS auditing, mitigation of risks, compliance uncertainty, business continuity.
