What is the difference between a Short Course and an Online Bootcamp?

What does an IT Auditor do?
IT auditors ensure the quality and compliance of one's IT security systems, assessing these for any vulnerabilities, risks, or ongoing problems. They then report their findings to others in the organisation, proposing the appropriate solutions or improvements to current processes. Their work aims to maintain the reliability, efficiency, and accuracy of an organisation's cyber security program, while abiding by industry standards, laws, and regulations. As such, these experts often earn a generous salary package, with the average IT audit manager earning about $120K AUD in Australia (according to Glassdoor).
