All auditors, either financial, operational or IT come into contact with IT processes and outputs. Understanding how this impacts the area being auditing is crucial to performing a comprehensive and valuable engagement. For the new auditors (or possibly individuals pursuing a degree in accounting / auditing) this training will discuss the various aspects of being an auditor, roles and responsibilities, day in the life of an auditor and career advancement. For the more seasoned auditor, numerous companies are focusing their reviews on the latest in technology, cloud computing, cybersecurity, etc. The entire concept of general controls has been overlooked so this is a perfect primer for these individuals to get “back to basics” and remember some of things they may have “forgotten”. 

After the general audit and IT overviews are completed, the training will shift to Information Technology and look at the various control models, the need for controls and risk management. This last section will be devoted to the details for the general control framework needed in any IT Organization and discuss 12 IT General controls. Each control section will describe the need for the control, how it should be developed and what the auditor should look for during any involvement in those areas.
