Work smarter, not harder: How to transform IT audits with automation


Digital transformation is expanding the scope of IT assets, processes, and practices that audit teams must provide assurance over. And as these needs evolve, IT audit functions continue to grapple with resource, staffing, and skill challenges. Robotic process automation (RPA) can help address resource and talent shortages by allowing auditors to work smarter and more efficiently.

In this 60-minute webinar, Rochelle Vargas, Audit Manager, Data Analytics at Ally Financial, shares how her team identified opportunities to automate manual IT audit processes to prevent ghost users and identify data anomalies. Join us to learn:

  • How to evaluate and choose the best use case(s) for automation.
  • How Ally Financial applied automation and scripting to common IT controls, including user access and text parsing.
  • How to report on results for the most impact.
