Course Description

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on the world.  As economies attempt to bounce back from the financial crisis, companies have had to adjust to a new way of doing business. Social distancing and government regulations have caused companies to work virtually and have limited on-site employee presence.  Essential businesses have incredible regulations regarding safety that may cause there to be no outside visitors allowed on the premises. As a result, auditors need to develop new techniques, using current technologies to perform required audit procedures.

A remote audit, also known as a virtual audit, is the method of conducting an audit remotely, using electronic methods such as video conferencing, email, and telephone to obtain audit evidence, just like you would during an on-site audit.  The overall aim is to evaluate this evidence objectively to determine the extent to which the audit criteria have been fulfilled.  

This webinar is a detailed discussion of Best Practices and new techniques, used by audit professionals to address the challenges of auditing during a pandemic. Learn how you can become a nimble and agile auditor, using current technologies, techniques, and methodologies to ensure proper audits are being performed in the uncertain and changing times of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

This online CPE webinar for CPAs, CIAs, and other professionals covered the following key topics:

  • Tools available for remote auditing
  • Current techniques used by auditors
  • Methods used to gather audit evidence
  • Analysis of audit evidence gathered during remote auditing
