Hi everyone, my name is Kevin Henry, a security and risk consultant and a holder of the CISA certification. Welcome to my course on Overview of Information Systems Audit.

This course is a high level overview on the benefits and components of Information Systems Auditing. This course identifies the phases of IT audit and how to ensure that an audit provides value to the organization. This course will help you understand the value of audit from the perspective of either the auditor or the auditee that is subject to the audit.

I work in Outreach as a Security Evangelist at Team Cymru and I have been involved in the field of Information systems audit for many years. IT Audit is an incredibly important and satisfying role because it allows an organization to take a clear and honest look at itself with the goal of doing things better, and more efficiently.

Information technology is a critical component of business operations today. Nearly every part of the business relies on technology and networks in order to operate. This means that the IT audit function is important. Through the examination of IT projects, systems, processes and management, the auditor can assure management on the value and benefits of information technology and the effectiveness of risk management.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  1. Audit planning
  2. Audit evidence
  3. Audit recommendations
  4. Audit reporting
By the end this course, you’ll have an overview of IS audit and the ways to be a more effective auditor or be readily equipped to support an ongoing audit.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn _about the value and benefits of IS Audit and the role you can play in this exciting and rewarding field through this course, at Pluralsight.
