  • Fastidious, diligent and professional: the process of auditing is formalized and structured, such that auditors gather and base their assessments on factual evidence rather than conjecture.  Attention to detail, along with being organized and having the dogged determination to identify and evaluate even small discrepancies or anomalies, are characteristics of effective auditors.
  • Strong communication skills: although IT auditing generally involves examining IT systems, the greater part of the job involves interacting with people, interviewing them and discussing things, reporting (writing and presenting formal reports) and persuading/influencing.
  • High standards of personal integrity, trustworthiness and discretion.  Auditing involves privileged access to sensitive and valuable information.
