Here’s some links for Audit and IT Audit for dummies, one from the IIA, the other from ISACA. Most of them do not require being a member or logging in.
While these articles are not extensive, they will point new auditors in the right direction, and provide a refresher for the rest of us.I covered the general basics for all auditors in this post.
For IT auditors, an advanced Google search of isaca.org for the phrase “IT auditor should know about” provides a series of articles by Tommie W. Singleton such as:
What Every IT Auditor Should Know About Auditing Social Media
What Every IT Auditor Should Know About Access Controls
Here’s a shout out to madzutopia who left me a comment about audit basics, and got me thinking about a post like this. I hope this helps.
