What is meant by the Audit Objective, Scope and Criteria?

Posted by Craig Thornton

This is a video series from Mango partner Andrew Thornhill from IRM Systems in Melbourne, Australia.

In this blog Andrew talks about how you can define a clear and concise audit objective, scope and criteria. As a result, you will be able to communicate those to all parties involved in the audit process.




1. Objective: the purpose of the audit 

2. Scope: where you are going to start and stop the audit. 

3. Criteria: the requirements to audit against.
