Please join us for the IIA Brazos Valley Chapter Meeting. Lunch will be served at noon. The meeting will open with chapter business followed by a presentation on Access Controls given by Sandra Menjivar-Suddeath.
Pulling information from IT systems is a normal day occurrence when conducting an audit, but can you trust the reliability and validity of the information from the IT systems ? The first step to testing the reliability and validity is one of the most critical: system access. The presentation will discuss testing application access, including high level accounts.
