Question 49:SkippedIn the process of evaluating program change controls, an IS auditor would use sourcecode comparison software to:ensure that all changes made in the current source copy are tested.detect a source program change made between acquiring a copy of the source and thecomparison run.identify and validate any differences between the control copy and the production program.examine source program changes without information from IS personnel.(Correct)ExplanationExamine source program changes without information from IS personnel is correct. Whenan IS auditor uses a source code comparison to examine source program changes withoutinformation from IS personnel, the IS auditor has an objective, independent and relatively
complete assurance of program changes, because the source code comparison identifiesthe changes. Detect a source program change made between acquiring a copy of thesource and the comparison run is incorrect. The changes detected by the source codecomparison are between two versions of the software. This does not detect changes madesince the acquisition of the copy of the software. Identify and validate any differencesbetween the control copy and the production program is incorrect. Confirmation that thecurrent production program is the same as the control copy could be made throughevaluation of program change controls.. Ensure that all changes made in the current sourcecopy are tested is incorrect. Source code comparison detects all changes between anoriginal and a changed program; however, the comparison will not ensure that the changeshave been adequately tested.Question 50:SkippedDuring a postimplementation review, which of the following activities should beperformed?
