Advanced Information System Audit and Assurance - ACCG887

This unit develops an understanding of internal and operational controls as well as knowledge of the organisation as it relates to information systems (IS) audit and assurance with an emphasis on cyber security.

Students will examine the risks associated with information systems using frameworks that provide professional standards, guidelines, tools and techniques for IS auditing. The risk-based approach to IS audit is developed so that students will have exposure in risks and controls analysis to different IS environments and platforms. Students will learn how to create IS audit plans and reports to examine IS security of an organisation's applications. In this unit students develop graduate capabilities in a range of areas, including: critical analysis skills in information management and analysis; problem solving skills in sourcing and identifying relevant information and interpreting output in a multidisciplinary environment; and communication and negotiation skills.
