IT Auditing in E-Government

  • Reinhard Riedl

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4084)


We first motivate the need for innovative IT auditing approaches for E-Government. Then we define the requirements and propose an own IT auditing concept for E-Government projects. It is based on established risk management procedures, project management concepts for multidisciplinary projects, and on past experience. Finally, we validate our proposed approach against the requirements.
