Purpose: To provide a business systems perspective of an organisation with specific emphasis on the concepts of business risk and control which is the concern of the auditor in terms of risk based auditing. Business systems are discussed in the context of an overall business model or architecture. Architecture is a rigorous systems description of the structure of an entity (organisation), its decomposition into its subsystems, the relationships between subsystems, the relationships of these subsystems with the external environment, the terminology to use, and the guiding principles for the decomposition, design and evolution of an entity. A thorough understanding of the various subsystems and components of an entity is a pre-requisite for learners (accounting students) specialising in computer auditing. This module is intended for those already qualified or busy qualifying as either internal or external auditors who wishes to specialise in the area of computer auditing, and for those working towards their qualification as a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA).
