Event Overview:


In today’s work environment, many organisations have gone digital and hence Internal Audit (IA) cannot continue with auditing around the IT systems. IT application controls have very wide coverage and differ from organisation to organisation, vendor to vendor and platform to plaform. So, how does IA scope in what to audit and how much to audit? What is the relationship between IT general controls and application controls? Can you perform IT application controls without IT general controls? When there is deficiency noted from your IT application control review, how should auditor respond?

In this Learn At Lunch session, the speaker will provide an overview of managing IT audit and the relationships of IT general controls, IT application controls and IT security. Case studies will be applied to describe and illustrate what and how should auditors deal with IT application controls review and its review outcome.
