You also will discover how to assess all aspects of a business application, including completeness and accuracy of input, processing and output, transaction authorizations, processing flow balancing and reconciliations, and controlling high-risk interfaces. You will also learn about IT general control risks and control objectives for critical aspects of the IT infrastructure.

You also gain field-tested techniques for identifying, prioritizing, recording, assessing and evaluating application controls and procedures.

Prerequisite: You should first attend IT Auditing and Controls or have equivalent experience
Learning Level: Basic
Field: Auditing

Bonus: You will receive a copy of MIS' Information Technology &Audit Acronym Dictionary, defining hundreds of IT terms and acronyms, and the MIS Applications Control Handbook.
