Fraud Detection & Incident Response

For Auditors & Fraud Examiners

Session Summary

Regardless of what professional standards say, auditors and fraud examiners are expected to surface hidden problems – including wrongdoing, misconduct, theft and fraud. And regardless of how fraud is surfaced, we have a very visible opportunity for value-add service to management as part of – or even leading – the response team.

In this full-day program, participants will take a hard look at two related but different topics: detection and fraud incident response. You’ll examine your own fraud detection approach during recurring audit, examination and compliance assignments. Then we’ll break down the many roles and related practices of fraud incident response. Emphasis throughout will be on actions, not theory. What to do and what to avoid – all from the perspective of auditors and fraud examiners.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the three-steps needed to surface hidden issues, including wrongdoing, misconduct, theft and fraud
  • Discover why asking your boss about exactly what’s expected on each and every project is critical to building audit detection actions
  • Recognize why emphasis on new ‘shiny red ball’ fraud issues can pull our attention away from the many recurring fraud risks that are always present
  • Build an action checklist to plug the gaps between fraud detection expectations and action on each project
  • Explore incident response roles for auditors and fraud examiners – from initial suspicion thru investigation and assistance with prosecution
  • Identify what can go wrong during incident response and investigations – and steps you can take to mitigate those risks
  • Understand who needs to be on your team – before the alarm goes off
  • Recognize how to build and strengthen your fraud incident response capabilities for quick effective reaction when the alarm sounds
