What Every Auditor Should Know About IT

Offered bi-weekly on Tuesday in one two hour CPE event

How do you as an internal auditor really understand how information technology works?

Information technology (IT) is an integral part of every organization. To remain relevant in your career, all auditors must have an understanding of IT theories and concepts. But becoming fluent in IT can be intimidating, especially for non IT auditors.

The goal of this session is to help non IT and IT Auditors work better together by arming NON IT auditors with the knowledge to collaborate with the techies on the team.

You will come to understand that all of information technology is very simple:

  • Input - The processing of input data to support a business objective

  • Process - The logic to take the input and validate it and accomplish a business objective

  • Output - The storing of data to support later use.


After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand and describe basic IT concepts.

  • Describe IT infrastructure

  • Understand and test application controls

  • Identify areas appropriate for integrated audits

  • Perform integrated audits


This session is designed to arm auditors with the tools necessary to understand and work with the information technology used on a day-to-day basis in any organization.
