AA11 ● Application Controls in Operational Processes Uncovered I Practice signractice

Digitisation has accelerated the automation of business processes. This has made our lives easier in many ways, but the underlying technology also brings new risks. Companies that want to have and maintain control over digitisation must be able to identify those risks and, where necessary, tackle them.


This course teaches you how to integrate IT and digital risks in the audits that you perform on existing business processes. You will learn how IT and digital risks can influence those processes and how you can identify and tackle them.

You will learn, through practical examples, how to perform a combined business IT audit in a risk-based audit approach. You will also learn about the consequences IT and digital risks can have for organisations and how you can best deal with those consequences. It goes without saying that you will be provided with all the tricks and techniques to perform IT audits properly and according to the latest insights.

This training is based on an extensive case study.
