IT Audit

Information Technology (IT) is a critical enabler of business. Assuring an organization’s governance, risk management and control processes requires internal auditors to understand the role of IT within their organizations and to develop adequate knowledge and skills to audit IT systems as the line separating “IT” and “non-IT” audits is beginning to disappear, except in the very technical IT areas.

This seminar is not intended for IT audit specialists. It is specially designed to meet the basic IT audit training needs (at the awareness level) of financial and operational auditors and other professionals who have to assess IT risks, governance, management and controls in the execution of their role.
