IT Audit is the fastest growing specialization of auditing, and more companies than ever before are hiring skilled professionals to ensure their data and IT systems are compliant and secure.

There’s never been a better time to build the critical skills and real-world experience needed need to succeed in the IT Audit assurance workplace.

On August 15th at 6:00pm, we are hosting an exclusive networking and educational event to give a group of aspiring IT Auditors the chance to hear from two leaders in the expanding field of IT audit assurance, and make vital connections to advance their careers.

Attendees will also hear from the Program Manager of our new Certificate in IT Audit Execution, which starts this September, and learn how this innovative part-time program can take their career to the next level by not only preparing them for the CISA designation, but also by providing you with the real-world applied experience employers are looking for when hiring for the jobs they want.
