Topic: Fraud Detection and Incident Response for Auditors

In this program, we’ll parachute right in building detection steps that apply to professional auditors. We’ll use all new examples and small group brainstorming as our foundation for learning. Then we’ll take a hard look at what to do (and what to avoid) in fraud incident response – all from the perspective of auditors. Throughout the program, you’ll get action lessons from current, real-world examples and experiences. Join us to build your own fraud detection practices and case response checklists.

Learning Objectives:

  • Exactly how to bridge the gap between fraud risk brainstorming and audit program steps
  • What works and what doesn't for audit-based detection of fraud, theft and other wrongdoing
  • Three-Step Fraud Detection for Auditors
