Instructor for this course

This is the fifth of a multi-part series following the structure of my book Auditor’s Guide to IT Auditing which follows the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) Certified Information Systems Auditor qualification syllabus.

The whole series takes the aspiring Information Technology (IT) auditor from the basics all the way through to advanced concepts and techniques for conducting professional IT audits.

Both the book and the courses have proven of major assistance to auditors preparing for the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) exam as well as Part 1 of the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) examination of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA).

Part 5 of the series covers Information Systems and Information Technology Governance together with the associated Support Tools and Frameworks as well as Governance Techniques.

This is a great course for those new to accounting concepts, or for those who have forgotten what they learned in college.
