Risk-Based IT Audit 5-Day Training Summit, including frameworks such as COBIT 2019, ISO 27002, and additional frameworks that will be reviewed


Welcome to the Risk-Based IT Audit 5-Day Training Summit, a comprehensive program designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills required to conduct effective risk-based IT audits. In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, organizations face increasing risks related to cybersecurity, data privacy, regulatory compliance, and operational resilience. Therefore, it is essential for IT auditors to adopt a risk-based approach that aligns audit activities with organizational objectives and focuses on critical areas of concern.

One of the core aspects we will explore throughout the summit is the utilization of prominent frameworks in IT auditing. We will delve into the widely recognized COBIT 2019 framework, which provides a comprehensive set of principles and practices for IT governance and control. Additionally, we will examine the ISO 27002 framework, focusing on its control objectives and implementation guidelines for information security management. By incorporating these frameworks into your IT audit approach, you will be able to effectively assess risks, evaluate controls, and provide valuable insights to stakeholders. Furthermore, we will explore other relevant frameworks that complement risk-based IT auditing, ensuring you have a holistic understanding of industry standards and regulatory requirements
