Information Technology General Controls Seminar - COBIT

About this Event

Learn the best practices for Information Technology governance, management, security, control and auditing under COBIT and COSO 2013.

This is a one-day CPE seminar designed to provide an understanding of an effective program for the creation of a system of internal control within Information Technology (IT). We use the COBIT framework as our basis for the control groups and assessment is under COSO 2013. It was created to allow organizations to create effective Section 404 documentation. Be trained on how your organization can develop and maintain an effective IT internal control framework to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) Section 404 or other similar regulations.

Our attendees learn that a top-down, risk-based approach to COBIT compliance can produce better results for their companies by streamlining their operations, providing more accurate, timely and reliable information, avoiding litigation and reducing their IT costs. Learn the "Best Practices" for COBIT, COSO 2013 and Section 404 from the methodology viewpoints provided by Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology (COBIT), IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and IT departments around the globe. Implement and update your IT SOX compliance and IT auditing programs.

IT application controls will be discussed concerning transaction processing controls. The COBIT Framework (Control Objectives for Information Technology) is the most widely-used framework being used in SOX compliance efforts. This framework will be covered in detail.
