New module of ITWG e-course developed in cooperation with German SAI


In the frame of Research and Training Hub project, EUROSAI IT Working Group is developing a training course"Introduction to Public Sector IT Audit" . 

The module Information Security, Protection of Personal Data, and Business Continuity has been developed by colleagues from Bundesrechnungshof (SAI Germany). The study material is available in English, and additionally, German version is also available.  It covers topics such as governance in information security management and information security risk management. The study module also gives an overview of operational information security management and business continuity management. Finally, it introduces the design of an information security audit by a supreme audit institution.

The goal of the whole training course "Introduction to Public Sector IT Audit" is to increase the quality and impact of contemporary audits that frequently include IT components. Therefore, non-IT-auditors would benefit from basic knowledge about IT auditing provided in the training course. The training course will eventually consist of 7 modules. Currently, 5 modules have been published, and final modules will be published in the coming months.

The course is offered as online course in Moodle environment. There are no time limitations to taking the course - you can take it at your own pace. The exercises in the course material can be taken unlimited number of times.

The EUROSAI ITWG Moodle is operated by the EUROSAI ITWG Secretariat / the National Audit Office of Estonia. To take the course, please go to, create your account and start learning.
