Audit departments have been trying for decades to implement audit objectives that fully integrate enterprise risks with IT risks. For many, however, the lack of adequate planning and scoping has rendered the effective execution of integrated audits an elusive goal.
In this pragmatic three-day seminar you will review an integrated auditing methodology that includes valuable risk-based scoping and staffing considerations designed to help ensure the successful implementation of your integrated audits. Focusing on a top-down, risk-based approach to auditing application system transactions, you will master application systems audit and testing techniques that can be applied to integrated audits. You will cover the key risks addressed during an integrated audit, including application controls, user access, separation of duties, change management, and business continuity planning. You will see for yourself why key IT infrastructure components such as operating systems and database management systems must be considered as part of the integrated audit. You will leave this intensive seminar with the skills and know-how you need to develop and implement a successful integrated auditing strategy.
