IS Auditing Standards are mandatory requirements for certification holders’ reports on the audit and its findings. IS Auditing Guidelines and Procedures are detailed guidance on how to follow those standards. The IS Auditing Guidelines are guidance an IS Auditor will normally follow with the understanding that there may be situations where the auditor will not follow that guidance. In this case, it will be the IS Auditor’s responsibility to justify the way in which the work is done. The procedure examples show the steps performed by an IS Auditor and are more informative than IS Auditing Guidelines. The examples are constructed to follow the IS Auditing Standards and the IS Auditing Guidelines and provide information on following the IS Auditing Standards. To some extent, they also establish best practices for procedures to be followed.
