Course Overview: Auditing Information System Controls -- The Basics

The learning objective is to provide a basic and broad overview for auditing information system (IS) controls using the Government Accountability Office’s Federal Information System Controls Audit Manual (FISCAM).  IS controls consist of those internal controls that are dependent on information systems processing and include general controls and application controls.  The FISCAM describes (1) an audit methodology for assessing the effectiveness of IS controls, and (2) the IS controls that auditors evaluate when assessing the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and information systems.  This one-day session will cover topics relating to Entity-wide Security, Access Controls, Configuration Management, Segregation of Duties, Contingency Planning, and Application Controls. 

Appropriate dress for this event is Business Casual.
