Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

As computing power has advanced, entities have become increasingly dependent on technology to carry out their operational requirements and to collect, process, maintain and report essential data. This reliance on electronically encoded data and on the systems that affect managerial decisions constitute a significant concern of audit professionals. Consequently, Information Technology (IT) auditors examine the adequacy of controls in information systems and related operations to assure effectiveness and efficiency in business processes. Additionally, among other assurance services, IT auditors evaluate the reliability of computer-generated data supporting financial statements and analyze specific programs and their processing results. To ensure maximum value delivery from audit area assessments, oversight committee members need an evaluation methodology that enables confidence in the work performed by IT auditors.

“IT Auditing: Principles and Practices for Executives and Directors” highlight assurance assessment oversight for information and related technology considerations. Systemically, this webinar covers accepted criteria for examining information systems deployed in specific audit areas.

Topic Background:

Events posted by various news outlets, including Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Yahoo.com, concerning Knight Capital’s financial debacle, presented grave allegations regarding managerial due diligence during system development lifecycles. Undoubtedly, an individual or group authorized activation of the critical new application that accepted an irregular transaction. Therefore, it appeared that adequate precautions, such as application processing testing, were not performed either before deployment, during implementation, or after installation by the project team. In this case, the estimated cost to the already troubled firm was USD 440,000,000.00, an amount no financial-based institution can classify as immaterial.

Considering, as computing power has advanced, entities have become increasingly dependent on technology to carry out their operational requirements and to collect, process, maintain and report essential data. This reliance on electronically encoded data and on the systems that affect managerial decisions constitute a significant concern of audit professionals. Consequently, Information Technology (IT) auditors examine the adequacy of controls in information systems and related operations to assure effectiveness and efficiency in business processes. Moreover, among other assurance services, IT auditors evaluate the reliability of computer-generated data supporting financial statements and analyze specific programs and their processing results. Thus, the question regarding the circumstances that produced this extraordinary financial loss is: Did management assign an IT auditor to the software project team?
