A 3 Day Training Course
Internal Audit: Fraud & Forensic Auditing and Risk Management Excellence 2019
The variety and complexity of risks facing today’s organisations is increasing, due in part to emerging technologies, globalization, and increased compliance obligations. How can Business Leaders and more importantly those responsible for assurance activities ensure that they have an adequate understanding of these growing risks? How can they ensure that these risks are carefully considered and that “somebody” in the organisation is looking at these risk areas?
Through real-world case studies, this 3 day program will explore the many ways that strategies and organisations can fail, and how to recognise and avoid these risks. Participants will learn the elements for linking audit activities to the organisation’s objectives and key risks, with in depth analysis of fraud and using forensic accounting to drive better business outcomes. Organisations need to anticipate, prioritise, mitigate, and manage the threats to their organisation, ranging from possible failures in compliance, fraud and internal controls to risks emanating from strategy to risks caused by external and often uncontrollable events.
