Information Technology (IT) is a critical enabler of business. Assuring an enterprise’s governance, including risk management and control processes, requires auditors to understand the role of IT within their organizations and to develop adequate knowledge and skills to audit information technology (IT) systems as the line separating “IT,” and “non-IT” audits are beginning to disappear, except in the very technical IT domains.

This course is designed to give non-IT auditors and beginning Information security professionals an overview of the various considerations and aides in audit planning to gain a greater understanding of how to evaluate defined audit areas.


This webinar will assist those without technology experience in their pursuit of designing and executing audits which assess information security components.
