Investors and stakeholders in today's capital markets expect that the financial statements they analyze truly are a fair representation of a company's financial position. A critical component to this expectation is that the auditors who have signed an audit opinion have done everything they can to ensure that the financial statements are free of material misstatements due to error or fraud. Auditors today are expected to detect fraud, even though they may not have the necessary skill sets or experience to do so. This course focuses on training auditors to think and act more forensically and will deliver the skill sets necessary to detect fraud in an organization.
