Information systems auditing is a growing profession. In order for information technology educators to help keep up with the demand for information systems audit professionals, more understanding is needed about the knowledge, skills and abilities required for entry-level IT auditors. In our ongoing research, we have analyzed several sources to identify such skills. In the process we noted that there are gaps between what academics, practitioners, and professional associations see as the key skills required for success in this lucrative profession. We suggest reasons for such gaps and discuss potential future research opportunities.
