In today’s organizations audits of business application systems development are complicated by the presence of a different computer platforms, a myriad of user needs, and diverse technical environments. In this three-day seminar you will explore proven audit strategies that will enable you to efficiently audit and evaluate applications systems development in a variety of technical environments. You will review common applications development risks, how to overcome them and what you must do to meet the new internal control and documentation requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley. You will drill down to the unique risks associated with purchased, in-house, and Web-based applications and learn what you can do to minimize them. You will cover rapid application development (RAD), implementation and control change, design specifications, testing, project management, and application software inventory control. In short, you will focus on what you need to know, what you need to do, and when you need to do it…all with an appreciation for the fact you have other responsibilities and audits to perform. You will leave this timely seminar with audit programs, questionnaires, and sample audit findings you can put to use as soon as you return to your office.
