AWO speaks at PICPA Faculty Development Committee webinar
Consulting Partner Allan W. Ocho (AWO) facilitated a webinar on BS Accounting Information System (BSAIS) topics and international certifications hosted by the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) Faculty Development Committee last 28 August.
AWO oriented participants on Information Technology (IT) Risk Management, one of the topics included in the BSAIS curriculum. He discussed risk and control concepts, control frameworks and standards, and the importance of managing IT risks. He emphasized IT governance and management concepts and how they add value to organizations and help achieve business objectives. He also discussed the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) certification and the ways it can enhance one’s capabilities in teaching BSAIS courses to accounting students.
