IT Audit Workshop

IT Audit Workshop

Part 1: How to Audit the IT General Controls Suite - Auditing technology for business auditors.

Part 2: Auditing Agile and Scrum Development Projects - Improving project management through integrated audits.

IT risks are increasingly recognized as critical factors in enterprise risk management. From preventing failures in regulatory compliance to helping avoid devastating harm to the reputation of the organization from headline-making security breaches, auditors have an obligation as well as value-adding opportunities to assess enterprise vulnerabilities through effective risk-based IT audit planning.

Today, application systems development is all about SPEED. Agile and Scrum are all about getting data as well as processing and reporting to the customer ASAP. This is further complicated by the lack of standardized methodologies, expectations and business models. Auditors, reviewers and project sponsors are further confounded by the difficulty of knowing what can be done in a definitively short amount of time, especially in an environment that discourages oversight and audit..
