Information Technology Audit Fundamentals

Course Description:
This comprehensive 2-day course will provide attendees with the foundation knowledge and capabilities to plan an Information Technology (IT) audit program, conduct performance audits of IT systems and operations, and to work with or supervise those with higher level technical skills in IT audit. A wide range of IT topic areas will be covered.

The Information Technology Audit Fundamentals course will focus on applying recognised 'best practice' IT governance and management frameworks that provide the logical and intuitive foundation for developing and conducting an effective IT audit program. Participants will consider relevant 'real world' business case studies within structured workshops, and also obtain audit programs that can be used in their workplace.

  • Audit management
  • Internal auditors who are or will be involved in IT audits
  • IT auditors wishing to enhance or refresh their capabilities
  • Those who provide oversight and supervision of IT auditors (including oversight of outsourced service providers), and
  • IT professionals and others seeking a more thorough understanding of audit perspectives and methodologies.
