Overview

The course will begin with a review of the IS audit process based upon internationally accepted audit standards. The student will learn methods for conducting a risk assessment as well as techniques to successfully evaluate the effectiveness of Information Technology (IT) controls based upon the identified risks. Students will also become familiar with Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC) from an IS auditor’s perspective. The course will also review the processes for ensuring the organizational strategies and objectives are met not only during the acquisition, development and testing phases of the systems life cycle but also during the operations and maintenances phases.

While designed to review the IS audit processes and procedures, this course has a focus on preparing candidates to sit for the CISA certification examination. This focus will include practice exams and question analysis to aid students in figuring out exactly what the questions are asking and how to answer them.
