Fingers crossed that the pandemic slows down and we can see some members in Tallinn!
Update on Research and Training Hub
Research and training hub is in motion. We received the input from many SAIs in January and February this year. There are several SAIs who are actively willing to contribute to preparing and developing courseware for the programme and others who are willing to share their cases for the specific learning modules.
Currently, we are moving forward with developing courseware in
- basic understanding of IT audit component and IT audit domains for regular auditors
- understanding of relevance of data analysis in an audit.
More detailed training program of introduction to IT audit will be sent out soon to members for review.
