Fraud is an insidious crime. For decades, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners has been estimating the amount that entities lose to fraud on an annual basis. Despite endless studies on why and how it occurs, the creation of systems or controls to prevent it, and the development of internal reports to detect it, fraud continues to be a problem. In this full-day CPE Course, Mark Dauberman explains a defined methodology with a step-by-step approach to fraud risk identification for asset misappropriation schemes and indicators of fraud and the controls that may be effective for prevention.
Revenue and cash receipts are two critical areas that require strong controls to prevent intentional fraud or unintentional misstatements. While there is well-publicized fraud in these areas in larger companies, it also occurs, and can even be more likely to occur, in smaller businesses and not-for-profit entities. A deficiency in internal control that prevents an entity from protecting its cash is putting that entity’s existence in jeopardy. It is the management’s responsibility to develop, implement, and maintain controls to protect the entity’s assets from misappropriation as well as to otherwise achieve management objectives. A sound system of internal control is needed to help prevent fraudulent activities and reporting related to the revenue and cash receipts cycle. This online CPE course covers how relevant professionals can help in creating a system with strong internal controls.
Inventory is an important asset. It is one of the biggest assets in the case of manufacturers. But inventory is one of the hardest assets to measure and track if you do not have an established system running smoothly. From the internal control perspective, employees’ direct daily access to inventory or inventory accounting records and providing an ongoing temptation to steal or cook the books makes it really difficult to prevent and detect misbehavior. In this webinar, the speaker discusses how the inventory can be at risk, and why internal controls are crucial for the same. He will also explore the subject of the internal control for the inventory.
This online CPE webinar on Auditing covers the following Key Topics:
This CPE course also discusses information that can help build expectations to derive or develop analytical procedures and management reports to be useful for the detection and prevention of fraud.
