Bill S.
Very rich content.
James M.
Interesting to get a start in IT audit and get to know technical aspects. Personally, I especially apppreciated day 2 and 3 with the explanations of more technical aspects, rather than the more general auditing technique aspects which I am supposed to more or less know already.
Maxwell J.
Very knowledgeable sessions, I learned so much.
