B. inform management of his/her inability to conduct future audits.

In this situation the IS auditor should inform management of the impairment of independence in conducting further audits in the auditee area. An IS auditor can perform nonaudit assignments where the IS auditors expertise can be of use to management; however, by performing the nonaudit assignment, the IS auditor cannot conduct the future audits of the auditee as his/her independence may be compromised. However, the independence of the IS auditor will not be impaired when suggesting/recommending controls to the auditee after he audit.
