IT Essentials for Audit Committee - Online Classroom

Information technology is integral part of essential skill set required for audit committee in today’s auditing world. The course takes an integrated risk and controls-based approach to IT audit assurance coverage, covering IT governance, application, and general IT controls (including IT projects), IT resilience and recovery, data protection, IT operations, and cybersecurity, new and emerging technologies and risks, and the IT audit program.


Learning Outcomes 

By the end of the training course, the participant will be able to: 

  • Their governance responsibilities in respect to cyber oversight. 
  • The information technology investment of the organisation, including major projects. 
  • The more significant risks to the company’s information technology, its business, and its reputation. 
  • The industry’s legal and regulatory framework impacting IT and cybersecurity 
  • How to ask the right questions from executive and management engaged in IT, and to assess the adequacy of the answers obtained. 
  • That the IT internal audit program is comprehensive and targeted, utilises effective methodologies, and that those undertaking independent reviews are sufficiently qualified, experienced, capable, and reliable. 

No prior background in information and communication technology is required. Our starting point is that the course will assist each Audit Committee member apply their own existing skills and knowledge to effective governance scrutiny; and be able to ‘ask the right questions and get the right answers’.
