This is the fourth 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 4 of the series covers the audit use of computer-assisted audit techniques (CAATs), the Audit Evidence Process and Audit Reporting and Follow-up
