System based audit?

Systems Based Auditing (SBA) was developed during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Before SBA was invented the auditing methods in use were in the main reactive, a prime example is the infamous transaction testing audit method known as 'tick and turn'. Although SBA has been in use for over 40 years, there are still misconceptions about what SBA is. SBA is an audit methodology designed to check upon the adequacy and effectiveness of internal controls in both financial and non-financial systems
