Using Forensic Auditing Techniques to Identify High-Risk Transactions -- 3 Days

Solving financial and management reporting requirements, while meeting regulatory compliance and auditability standards, are among the most essential concerns for organizations today. This course helps managers to effectively use their business data, including examining transactional data, based on business process risk and other factors of significance to management. When managers use these techniques to array transactions based on risk, the results can be used to focus scarce resources on internal control testing. Providing the results from this process to oversight agencies can assist in identifying audit subjects that, from a risk perspective, benefit management the most.

Learning Objectives

This course covers:

  • Using data analytics to support an agency’s internal control program and internal and external auditors, and to exchange information with other government agencies, as necessary 
  • Identifying best practices for research on fraud identification techniques and applications for oversight data analysis
  • Disseminating research results to other managers, auditors, and investigators
  • Developing and implementing ways to ensure appropriate online, read-only access to management personnel and oversight agencies
  • Developing a repository for key automated systems to help auditors, investigators and others find information on specific systems
