The changing technology landscape and fast-paced digitisation involving cloud adoption, big data analytics and intelligent automation has led to newer and greater technology risks. KPMG International recently conducted a global survey of 300+ participants from Chief Audit Executives, Audit directors, Vice presidents and Senior Managers belong to internal audit functions and asked them to rank their technology risk areas that they are likely to review in their upcoming audit/assessment cycles. Below is an illustration of the technology risk landscape based on these responses.


As is evident from the survey responses, emerging technologies feature highly on this list with cyber, data privacy, cloud security and blockchain all on the agenda. This demands organisations to strengthen their technology audit capabilities, and transform their audit methodologies incorporating analytics and automation for an integrated and continuous review of enterprise risks and controls.

Additionally, internal audit function needs to heighten collaboration with other lines of defense and across business units to help organisations enhance their IT audit, IT risk and compliance capabilities thus driving value into the business.

The ever-increasing scope and complexity of technology audit impact the organisations due to a shortage of relevant talent. This results in organisations opting for models such as outsourcing or co-sourcing of technology risk capabilities or even using SME support to audit emerging risk areas. The increasing broad spectrum of technology risks also leads to talent requirements in the other two lines of defense to assist in the running of an effective risk management and governance programme.

KPMG in India, through the below services, assists global organisations in addressing the above challenges and transforming their internal audit function, strengthening their technology risk governance portfolio enabling them to assist in holistic review of risks and controls:
