Last year, the “Almost Free” seminar was so good, you asked for a follow-up.
Day 1 (February 17, 8:30 - 4:00): "Enterprise Network Security for Secure Electronic Commerce"
This course is designed for internal auditors who desire to review the company’s intranet, extranet and Internet security architecture.
Day 2 (February 18, 8:30 - 4:00): "Hands-On"
Option 1 is "Statistical Sampling Made Easy." The SOX Act reflects the resurgence of internal control testing. Dr. Dan can and does make ‘stat’ sampling funny and understandable.
You can select Option 2, which is "Advanced Features of Excel and Advanced Analytics." Excel is packed with an armada of audit optimizing techniques, which can reduce audit cycle time while increasing audit findings. Kim Kneer will demonstrate that you should be able to do more with Excel than just sum and average.
Space is limited for Day 2 since it is “hands-on.”

In continuing that program, we are pleased to recognize members of the Dallas Chapter who have reached their milestone membership anniversaries with the Institute of Internal Auditors.
|January 2004 Anniversaries|
Less than 900 current members worldwide have earned the distinction of membership in the IIA for over 25 years. In January, we added six members of the Dallas chapter to this elite group.
For their 15 years of membership in the IIA, we would like to recognize:
Congratulations to each of you. We are proud of the members of the Dallas chapter and will be honoring each of you as you reach your milestone anniversaries. Thank you for your continued membership and service!

The IIA Research Foundation has recently published a report entitled PC Management Best Practices: A Study of the Total Cost of Ownership, Risk, Security, and Audit. It is co-authored by one of our own – Mark Salamasick (Director of the Endorsed Internal Audit Program at the University of Texas at Dallas).
This report provides hands-on guidance for auditors addressing security, effectiveness and efficiency in managing a large PC fleet. It examines the total cost of ownership associated with a PC environment and best practices for financial and technology managers engaged in managing a PC fleet. This guidance fits into the Professional Practices Framework as a development and practice aid.
It is in paperback form and totals 155 pages. You can order it online at – www.theiia.org/iia/index.cfm?act=form.bookstore, or by calling toll free 1-877-867-4957. (Publication order # 482; IIA member price – $25; nonmember price - $30). I am sure that Mark will be happy to autograph the report for you.
We are now well into the second semester with the new Internal Audit Program and are working on a full schedule with the UTD Student Chapter. We have over 25 students in the Student Chapter and a second group of enthusiastic students in the Internal Audit class. What also amazes me is the growth in the IT Audit class and the interest of students in taking both the CIA and CISA. I think students are getting the message that certification is just as important, if not more important, than the college degree. I get as many questions from people on certifications as I do about the program.
We worked last year with the Internal Audit group at UTD in completing an audit that was able to provide the students with actual audit experience. We have a lot more students in the class, so we are planning to complete three audits this semester. It has been a great opportunity for the class, plus it has provided additional resources for the UTD Audit group.
It has been suggested to the students that participation in the Dallas Chapter meetings is the best way to learn about being in Internal Audit along with networking with internal auditors. They are all interested in hearing more about what you do and what it is like working in Internal Audit. So when you are sitting next to them at meetings, tell them how great it is working in Internal Audit!
We now have an Internal Audit library established at UTD which is available for all Chapter members to use and check out materials. Most of the IIA Research Foundation publications will be available along with much of the material available through IIA Educational Products. More information on this is included in the newsletter. Moon Cho is the librarian for the Student Chapter and students will have hours to staff the check out. The student office phone number is 972-883-5946 and can contact Moon at Cho_moonkyung@yahoo.com. Students also have hours that the office is staffed and posted at citm.utdallas.edu/eiap.
Internship interviews for internal audit candidates are planned on the UTD campus for February 26. If you want more information contact Mark Salamasick at 972-883-4729.
The new Endorsed Internal Audit Program is also designed to meet the needs of those employees transferring from other areas of the company to an internal audit role. The program also encourages audit practitioners who want to get current on audit techniques and prepare for the CIA exam. If you have interest in such a program please contact Mark Salamasick at 972-883-4729 or to learn more about the program visit http://citm.utdallas.edu/eiap. The Internal Audit class is offered every fall and spring semester at UTD.
The Research Foundation is currently conducting an E-Commerce Control and Risk Analysis Survey. This survey relates to a project that is being conducted for the Institute of Internal Auditors Research Foundation. The focus of the project is on identifying the key risk factors involved with B2B e-commerce and understanding the risks that an organization inherits via its relationships with a given business partner. Your feedback via this survey is extremely important to the project. It should take no longer than 15-20 minutes to complete this survey and your efforts will contribute to the success of this research project and to further the understanding of auditors internationally as to key e-commerce risk factors. The link to the survey is http://www.gain2.org/ecommerce.
It's time again for the survey to determine which IIA Dallas Chapter members have submitted articles or spoken in January or earlier if not previously reported. Each speaking engagement on internal auditing that a Dallas Chapter member completes will earn the Chapter 1 credit per CPD hour. Each full article, Roundtable article, Fraud Finding, etc. submitted that meets basic editorial guidelines will earn 5 credits. For each full article published 20 credits are earned. Each internal audit related article published in any other trade or professional journal that is authored by a chapter member is 5 credits.
To report your writing and speaking go to http://dallasiia.org/Speaking.htm and complete the provided form by February 15, 2004. Contact Magdalena Kovats (972-389-3344 or email@example.com) if you have any questions.
