About the Course

The course is awarded The Best Free Online Courses of All Time, and Best Online Courses of the Year (2021 Edition) by Class Central ( --- Information systems (IS) are important assets to business organizations and are ubiquitous in our daily lives. With the latest IS technologies emerging, such as Big Data, FinTech, Virtual Banks, there are more concerns from the public on how organizations maintain systems’ integrity, such as data privacy, information security, the compliance to the government regulations.

This course really helped me gain knowledge regarding IS audits, controls and assurance. Professors explanation was good and easily understandable. Guest interview made me acquire practical knowledge.

Pro. Diaz has taught and enlightened me about system audit a lot, most of this information was very new to me. I felt fortunate to have a mentor like him, and like to enroll in more courses with him.

Honestly, a little disappointed. If you consider courses like CISA which are very exhaustive, I expected this to be on those lines at a less deeper level. It covers general SDLC related things quite a bit, which most software folks would know already. Few things to learn, though.

The course covers very basic theoretical concepts. No practical application or real life case studies are mentioned. If you want to get a basic idea of IS Audit, this is enough.

It would be great if more details about Auditing Framework and some popular standards are discussed since they will be more helpful in work environment and interviews for Auditor Positions. I took the course to start my career as an IT Auditor and to add value to my profile. But the content taught is not sufficient and did not add much to the knowledge I already possess.
