Internal audit in the domain of information security refers to the process of reviewing and evaluating an organization’s information security practices, controls, and systems to ensure that they are effective in protecting the organization’s assets, data, and processes. Internal audits are typically conducted by an organization’s internal audit team and may be part of a broader internal audit program that covers other areas of the organization as well.
