Overview:

This webinar will give a good understanding of FDA and international expectations for auditing computer systems and provide steps for cost-effective implementation.

Auditing of computer systems is important to verify compliance of the systems with regulations and internal standards. When done right, audits can help to improve quality of computer system operation and uptime. In addition audits are also an excellent tool to prepare your organization and staff for external audits, e.g., FDA inspection. However, without a clear strategy audits can become quite complex and ineffective.
