Fraud & Internal Audit
This course will soon be available in the following cities: New York, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Atlanta, Miami, Orlando & Dallas. Check back soon for more details.
It is critical that internal auditors build fraud procedures into their audit approach from the start rather than being something that is added on after the fact. In fact, a comprehensive internal audit must incorporate fraud risk considerations during all phases. This course presents a comprehensive approach that will help auditors understand their responsibility for fraud, recognize common fraud schemes, create approaches to identify possible vulnerabilities, and perhaps even instances of fraud. This course goes beyond the need to evaluate internal controls and takes a more wholistic approach to assessing the likelihood of fraud within the business segment being audited. It provides insights into Fraud.global’s FraudSeeker tool and how many other factors are critical in determining if fraud is a higher risk. Lastly attendees will learn what to do when they find possible fraud.
