IIA-West Suburban Chapter is pleased to present a follow-up to last year’s popular “IT Audit for Non-IT Professionals” training session:
“More IT Audit Techniques for Non-IT Audit Professionals”
The session content will include evaluating IT risks, general controls (ITGCs) and application controls, with an emphasis on cyber security threats and mitigation. It will discuss the various types of audits within the ITGC realm, integrated audits and the use of best practice frameworks, such as CobIT and ISO 27000. The attendees will gain a better understanding of how IT audit integrates with the overall audit process, and be able to effectively approach an IT audit as a non-IT Auditor, from both management and staff perspectives.
While the session will follow on the general content from the original session last year, it is also geared to those with a minimum level of IT audit knowledge. It is also appropriate for IT auditors who are relatively new to the profession, looking for a refresher or to expand on areas with which they may be less familiar.
