Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Kevin Henry, a certified information systems auditor. Welcome to my course, Information System Auditor: Governance and Management. This is the second of five courses that will prepare you for ISACA's Certified Information Systems Auditor, or CISA, examination. I'm a security evangelist at Team Cymru and auditing is an exciting profession, in that it allows you to make a difference every day. You have the opportunity to review and improve business processes, tools, and people and provide key suggestions and recommendations on how the business can better prepare itself for success. In this course, we are going to examine the process of auditing IT systems with a detailed look at the audit of the IT management function and the efficiencies of IT operations. Some of the major topics that we will cover include project management and the risk of project failure, business continuity and disaster recovery, alignment of IT strategy with organizational strategy, and corporate and IT governance. By the end of this course, you'll know the second domain addressed in the CISA examination and be familiar with the areas of IT audit necessary to be an effective IT auditor. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Pluralsight's first course on the Certified Information Systems Auditor, and that is Information System Auditor -- the Process of IT. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into the courses on Information Systems Auditor - Acquisition and Development, Operations and Maintenance, and Protection of IT Assets. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about IT audit with the Information Systems Auditor: Governance and Management course at Pluralsight.
