CSI National Workshop on IT Risks and Application Controls – 4.3.2017 at Trivandrum
Computer Society of India is organising a National workshop on Information Technology Risks and Application Controls at Hilton Garden Inn, Trivandrum on March 4th, 2017.
Management is accountable for the business decisions it makes and for the reliability of the information upon which those decisions are based. They are also accountable for the reliability of the information it generates and provides to stakeholders and to gather its regulatory compliance requirements. The timeliness, accuracy and reliability of the information are dependent on the underlying application systems that are used to generate, process, store and report the information.
Application controls are those which are designed to ensure that authorized data are completely and accurately processed through an application system. Hence, the business applications and other interfacing applications that drive the business should be configured, customized and tested to ensure that the controls built within and around them are working as intended. Any weaknesses in the existing controls or lack of controls within the applications can result in financial losses, reputational loss and legal consequences to an organization. With the introduction of SOX legislation in America, this area has gained further more importance as they have serious compliance implications to the CEO/CFO of an organization.
The aim of the program is to provide the audience an in-depth overview of application control review, and offer practical approaches in conducting such reviews/audits. As practical exercises, the participants will be given scenarios and asked to identify control weaknesses and suggest measures and recommendations as an IS Auditor.
Training materials shared by the faculty will be given to each participant. Certificates will be provided to the participants on the successful completion of the workshop.
Participants can register for the program through register.csitvm.org.
