2.0 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits in Auditing


In this program we’ll tackle two closely related topics: how to detect fraud in three steps, and what to do and avoid once wrongdoing is suspected or found. Our emphasis will be on steps auditors can and should take on your own projects – regardless of industry, years of experience, or leadership preferences.

You’ll learn what can go wrong during initial incident response and deeper investigations, as well as ideas on managing management’s expectations. You’ll get tips on working effectively with legal, human resources, insurance companies and outside authorities once an investigation is under way.
