Course description

Advanced IT Audit School

In this information-packed four-day seminar, we will cover, in depth, key building blocks of modern IT audit, physical and logical security, including identity and access management. We will pay particular attention to the threats and vulnerabilities to web-based e-commerce. We will place special emphasis on discovering best practices and standards for auditing web (HTTP) servers and application servers and walk away with tools, techniques and checklists for discovering and testing web and application server security.

We will also cover auditing database management systems within the context of robust but practical enterprise architecture and governance models and go over web services and service-oriented architectures including SOAP, ReST, SOA and ESB. Together, we will also review safeguard concepts and best practices for secure mobile and wireless applications. We will also discuss standards associated with privacy issues and intellectual property concerns.
