Event Details

Session Title - Introduction to IT Audit

IT Auditing is an essential skill for internal auditors. To be an effective IT auditor, one needs to understand four major components of IT audit: IT Governance and Management, General IT Controls, Applications Controls, and Development Controls.  This course is an introduction to these concepts and will prepare you to pursue further training in IT Audit.  We will introduce you to the four primary types of IT audits: audits of IT systems, IT processing environments, systems development, and technical and special topic audits. We will define critical IT concepts, governance requirements, risk assessment techniques, and related auditing concepts.  You will be introduced to techniques for identifying operational and control requirements for IT systems, researching control objectives and related controls, evaluating control design or appropriateness, and assessing the reliability of IT audit evidence.

Session Objectives:

Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to: 

  • Gain a working understanding of IT audit concepts and practices,
  • Clarify the difference and importance of general versus application control audits,
  • Learn how to apply internal control fundamentals to the evaluation of IT system integrity, security and availability,
  • Gain an understanding of the operational and control objectives of the principle areas of general control,
  • Further your appreciation of the importance of IT in achieving organizational objectives and in providing assurance that appropriate controls are designed, implemented and in effect to attain system integrity, security and availability
