Information Technology Audit and Controls
UCC Executive Certificate Course
This course is important, because it can be used as a complement by accounting majors as well as IS majors. Because of Sarbanes-Oxley, many accounting firms have recruited IS graduates to grow their consulting services. Practitioners of these firms’ senior management have expressed more emphasis in IS programs for audit and control topics. Opportunities for discussion of business ethics fit well with examples of companies that have failed due to poor IT auditing and control procedures. The use of case studies, professional standards, and sample audit software programs is encouraged to exemplify concepts covered.
