IT Auditing And Controls

This intensive, three-day seminar outlines the concepts of information technology you need to know in order to understand the audit concerns in the IT environment.

You will learn the necessary controls for application systems - the session pinpoints specific controls to evaluate when auditing currently installed systems, new systems under development, and the various activities within the information technology department.

In addition, you will learn techniques for auditing automated systems and examine the impact of Sarbanes-Oxley on IT audit.

You will leave this session with a solid foundation in the basics of information technology as they apply to audit and security concerns. (Note: This seminar covers topics found in Chapters 1, 4, 5, and 6 of the CISA Review Manual.)
