Effectively Applying Data Analytics in High Volume Data Environments

Course Description

Print-friendly Course Description and Outline

There is a data explosion happening around the world. SMART devices, industrial controls systems, and artificial intelligence are filling up organization’s data storage at an alarming rate. These technologies are not only storing log data at local data centers, but also to sometimes third-party hosts outside the organization’s control as well. Traditional tools for assessing these systems activities may not be robust to handle the volume or type of traffic created. Internal auditors need to recognize the impacts these highly communitive devices have and develop methods to assess that these devices — and the data they produce — are adequately monitored and analyzed.

Who will benefit from this course?

This program is for audit leaders and auditors looking for techniques for dealing with performing data analysis on highly communitive systems.
