Why Should You Attend:

As computing power has advanced, enterprise personnel have become increasingly dependent on technology to carry out operational requirements of collecting, processing, maintaining, and reporting essential data. This reliance on electronically encoded data and the systems affecting managerial decisions constitute a significant auditor concern. Consequently, information technology (IT) auditors examine the adequacy of controls in information systems and related operations to assure effectiveness and efficiency in business processes. Regarding assurance practice content, this webinar will address analytical techniques and detail evaluations. In this webinar, a discussion will occur relating the suitability of using analytical procedures for determining appropriate IT due diligence.

Information systems necessitate a high degree of reliability and integrity considering the effect on decisions. This condition results from the frequent need to extract system-generated information as opposed to manually created information to aid in making business decisions. Hence, auditors need to convey timely opinions on both the quality of data and the information produced by systems utilizing digital processing techniques. Typically, analytical procedures explore interrelationships and patterns of selected audit area items.

In this analytical procedure's webinar, information systems management expert Dr. Robert E. Davis, CISA, CICA, will discuss risk modeling, control substantiation, and event visualization for information and related technology.
