Course Description

A series of corporate scandals where employees, investors, and other stakeholders suffered tremendous loss have made the world aware of the severity of financial statement fraud. Their motives were either to manipulate share prices for their personal gain or to gain incentives by showing good performance and hiding bad news.

In current times, due to pressure from owners, lack of internal controls, and integrity, financial frauds are common and it is a global scourge that harms the reputations of all industries and costs trillions of dollars in worldwide damages each year. Fraud is a persistent fact of business life. The risks of fraud are only increasing fueled by changes in corporate culture, competitive markets, and periods of economic difficulty. Effective fraud prevention and detection begins with awareness.

Major topics highlighted in the Auditing CPE webinar:

  • What exactly is financial statements fraud?
  • Why financial statement frauds are conducted?
  • Who commit Financial Statement Frauds?
  • How they are committed - Some general categories?
  • How to detect if there is any fraud in financial statements using analytical methods?

The goal of this CPE course is to enhance professionals' abilities to recognize the fraudulent activities and develop strategies to deter the misconduct.
