IT infrastructure consists of the hardware, software, network resources and IT management services that we leverage to deliver the IT environment that supports our organisations. As the complexity of our IT environment increases and our dependence on IT grows, providing assurance on the effectiveness of the controls over these assets and services is critical to management and other key stakeholders. In this session, we will consider how we can effectively review IT infrastructure and the organisations and process we have put in place to manage it.

This is the fourth in a series of seven webinars about de-mystifying IT audit. The remaining webinars in this series will cover integrating IT audit into the business audit, how to audit cyber security, and General Data Privacy Regulations.
