Systems Audit and Compliance Audit

One thing you might be able to help me with, please, and that is that I have to understand the difference between a Systems Audit and a Compliance Audit for ISO standards and I don't really understand what this means. Thanks!

A Compliance Audit is used to conclude if within the scope of an audit there is compliance with established standards. So, it answers to the question: are rules being followed?

A System Audit can also be a Compliance Audit if the audit objective is to verify compliance. A System Audit can also be a different kind of audit, like an audit to verify effectiveness. In that case, it answers to the question: are rules helping us in meeting our objectives?

My answer is based on the world of quality management systems. I know that “Systems Audit” is also used for audits used to validate the integrity of information and data stored in information systems.
