IT RISK is a blind spot for audit with many companies failing to assess and manage the threats presented by rapidly evolving technology, a new report has shown.

Risk management consultancy Protiviti said internal audit functions also often fall short, failing to conduct an annual IT threat assessment and frequently lacking the necessary skills to carry out such appraisals.
