About This Course:
This four-day course is designed for financial, operational, business, and IT auditors who need to update their technical and operational knowledge to audit information technologies and business application systems.

What Is IT Auditing?

IT auditing is distinguished from traditional auditing in that it specifically involves the auditing of automated information processing systems, as well as any related non-automated processes and any processes that connect the two. The typical goal of an IT audit is to make sure controls exist within the IT environment that work to ensure the company is in legal and regulatory compliance. Areas with IT controls that need to be evaluated include data integrity, security and control of corporate assets.

IT auditors also need to have an understanding of how to effectively report their findings to management and make recommendations based on their compliance and substantive testing.

How Do I Become An IT Auditor?

If you are seeking a position as an IT Auditor, you should obtain your bachelor's degree first. Unlike many types of auditors who tend to seek degrees in areas like finance or accounting, your pursuit of an IT auditor position may be best suited with a degree like Computer Information Systems or Information Technology.

Regardless of the major, students interested in IT auditing should take courses like business database design, business information systems development and enterprise process analysis and design. Adding business-related courses outside the major such as accounting, finance or general business principles can also be very useful.

Following your degree, you may wish to obtain work experience in the field by pursuing an internship with a company that has an IT auditing team. Most companies looking to hire an IT auditor will be looking for experience, so this can be an important aid to your position search.

Finally, although it is not required, you will probably want to eventually seek IT auditor certification. IT auditor certification options include Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) and Certified Internal Auditor (CIA).

Why Do I Need An IT Auditor Training Course?
