The global Information Technology (IT) community considers becoming a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) a major accomplishment. To obtain the CISA designation information systems auditors, controls, or security professionals must pass a rigorous test demonstrating knowledge in a multitude of information systems audit process areas. Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) standards and guidelines, audit risk, and audit objectives are just a few knowledge requirements CISA candidates must master.
“IT Auditing: An Adaptive Process” provides a proven approach to IT audit planning, study, evaluation, testing, and reporting methods. Systemically, this book covers major steps in the IT audit process not chronicled in ISACA standards and guidelines. In terms of content, this workbook converts selected audit standards and guidelines into practical applications using detailed examples. This workbook also allows auditors to understand various steps and processes required to adequately initiate, document, and compile IT audit phases. Through this book, an auditor will acquire an appreciation for IT financial statement, government, and external auditing. Collectively, “IT Auditing: An Adaptive Process” can function as a study guide for CISA examination preparation as well as an audit reference manual.
