General Info


When an audit is performed in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards, a high level of assurance is provided that the financial statements are free of material misstatement caused by fraud or error. Fraud is pervasive, however, and it is critical that auditors familiarize themselves with current procedural, performance and documentation standards related to fraud—and be prepared to respond appropriately when fraud is uncovered. Receive an overview of the general concepts of risk assessment required by professional standards. In addition, get an in-depth review of the specific, fraud-related requirements, including changes resulting from the AICPA Audit Standards Board's Clarity Standards.
