Is future of IT Auditors dark?? 1231

  • Hi,
    Just wondering, most of the auditors doing IT side of the Sox part and performing IT Auditing in the wake of lack of enough knowledge of IT operations possessed by the regular finance auditors(CPA etc), do not have finance as their backround. I know a bunch of auditors who initially were developers, but tentalising per hr rates offered to these IT Auditors forced them to jumped into fishing in the troubled water.
    I can foresee that in the time to come, the IT part of sox will be integrated with regular audit of finances and regular CPAs etc will be responsible for doing IT Auditing also. At that time, what will happen to these auditors??? I guess they will be forced to leave this field. I am concerned because my brother is one of them.
    What do you think??
