Course Description

While enterprises’ reliance on IT systems continues to increase, IT systems are facing an increasing variety of threats. In the global trend of strengthening industry supervision and internal control, IT is increasingly playing an important role. IT not only needs to provide a guaranteed environment for business risk control, but its own risk control is also receiving much attention. IT risk also becomes part of business risk. IT risk refers to the process of information processing and the application of information technology, which may become various uncertain factors that affect the realization of organizational goals. IT risks include information technology risks at the organizational level, information technology risks at the general control level, and information technology risks at the business process level.

The continuous integration of IT and business is putting more and more CIOs under unprecedented pressure. In the modern-day environment, all auditors must become multi-faceted and multi-purposed. Regardless of background, internal audit professionals must have the basic knowledge of IT Auditing to understand the general concepts, understand IT terminology and how IT Auditing is integral to general auditing.
