Continued availability of this technology is a requirement for survival. Managers rely on the security of their networks and computer systems. Fortunately they can make use of the expert judgement and advice of an IT-auditor, concerning the strengths and weakness of the IT-support of their organization.

These requirements include the successful completion of a recognized post graduate course on IT-auditing. NOREA’s members have the professional resources to tackle a wide range of assignments.
RE’s audit and advise on the quality of the IT-support of the organization. Key perspectives for the IT-audit and advise are effectiveness, efficiency, manageability, continuity, integrity, security and auditability.
NOREA works to create a greater recognition of the importance of IT-auditing, to improve the standards of practice of the RE and to provide the necessary additionals training of its members. NOREA operates in many national committees on IT-issues, published a Dutch language quarterly magazine “De EDP-Auditor”, defines auditing standards of practice and organizes conferences and workshops.
