IT Auditing for Non-IT Auditors - Detailed Overview

Overview

In today’s environment, all auditors must become multi-faceted and multi-purposed. Regardless of background, internal auditors 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. There is no complete view/opinion of one without looking at the other. This online CPE virtual conference will take auditors through the basics of IT Auditing. A forward-looking audit function should provide insight, oversight and foresight around an organization's current and future risks and controls, especially in today’s fast-paced, “innovate or die” business environment. Data and technology-enabled business transformations are occurring at a pace we have not previously seen. Internal audit must respond to stay relevant, not just in its risk-assurance role, but in the way, it organizes itself, manages resources, delivers its services, and makes use of data and technology.

  • Understanding the Fundamentals of IT Auditing
  • Understanding the challenges faced by internal audit organizations
  • Describe a vision for the next generation of internal audit

I was disappointed in the last minute notification that the course was going to be pre-recorded and not live. It would have been helpful to have posted the recorded chats that occurred during the class to give context to the point the instructor was trying to convey.

Frequently Asked Questions
