IT Audit Insights for Cloud Computing and AI

When:  Nov 17, 2021 from 08:30 to 16:30 (ET)
Cloud computing provides organizations with access to technical resources that might otherwise be cost prohibited. Every organization has a business case that is tailored to their needs, articulating both the benefits and inherent risks of moving its operations to the cloud. Globally, the activity of hackers who breach managed service providers (MSPs) has increased resulting in the execution of ransomware attacks, point-of-sale intrusions, and business email compromise (BEC) scams.

This 8-hour virtual course provides participants with a deeper understanding of cloud-related designs, risks, and controls while examining the connection between cybersecurity and cloud environments. Further, this course provides additional insight into cloud-related standards and guidelines and explains how to audit cloud environments. This course is designed for internal auditors with a basic understanding of information technology and cybersecurity concepts and for those who have been involved in internal audit engagements that require an understanding of how to manage the impact of cloud computing on organizational risks.
