IT Exam Hotspots

It’s official, the examiners are back to full scope IT examinations; and while not a lot has changed with the basic exam process, a few “hotspots” have surfaced. The general areas still include the audit scope, management oversight, network and core processing controls, compliance with GLBA, business continuity planning, vendor management, and incident response planning.

However, in addition to the standard areas we’re seeing some targeted focus on online banking and cash management, social media policies and use and BYOD. Of course depending on your examiner and agency, the focus may vary slightly. In this fast-paced, information-packed presentation we will hit the top current “hotspots” and touch on some of the other areas of common criticism to date in 2013.


  • Authentication in an Internet Banking Environment (Account Takeover)
  • Social Media
  • BYOD
  • Incident Response
