Course Overview:

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