Ground Level in IT Auditing 383

  • Hi, I have over 6 years work experience as a IT Network System Administrator. I have been looking very closely at steering my career into more of a CISA/CISSP/IT Security Auditing direction.
    Recently the internal auditing department where I work have an opening for an auditor/assistant working for the auditors there. To be very honest I don’t know much about them. They all seem to be CA’s and CGA’s. They work on policies and procedures for my workplace.
    I am considering applying for the position even though it might be a step down and pay cut. But it sounds like a job that might be worth much more as far as relevant experience for pursuing my career goals.
    Do you think I am right in my assumption or incorrect? Is IT Auditing very different than ‘tradiitonal’ auditing?
