Information technology is a critical enabler of business processes employed by organizations to implement strategies, achieve goals, accomplish missions, and realize visions. Several recent  surveys indicate that  the line separating “IT” and Non”IT”, audit  is beginning to disappear. Assuring an organization’s governance, Risk management, and control process  requires  all internal auditors to  understand  the role of technology within their organization and begin developing the basic IT knowledge to do their job.

The premise of this course is that internal auditors can learn to audit IT by applying their operational audit skill in IT area. Through group discussion, practical team exercise and individual activity  participants  gain the skill  necessary to assess IT general controls and application  controls. Successful completion  of this course  enables  participants to  bring IT  into the scope of their organization.
