New modules of ITWG e-course available for learning


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 sixth module IT Development has five chapters. It includes an overview of system and software development processes, life cycles and models, core processes of a representative life cycle model, standards and frameworks relevant from the IT development viewpoint and SAI audits involving components related to IT development.

The seventh module IT Operation and Application Management has five chapters. It explores the main concepts of IT operation and application management and introduces standards and frameworks related to the topic. Also, processes related to IT operation and maintenance are explained and information security aspects, including proper IT administration and change management practices, are covered. Additionally, SAI audits involving components related to IT operation and application management, are being discussed.

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 and beginner-level IT-auditors would benefit from basic knowledge about IT auditing provided in the training course. The training consists of 7 modules in total.

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 time required to complete the course is individual, but approximately it is up to 10 hours per module. If you also read additional materials, then accordingly more.

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.
